About the Beach

What is Praia do Porto de Vinha Beach?

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Viana do Castelo.

Praia do Porto da Vinha Beach has very little sand. The sea waters close to land have many rocks that form a breakwaters barrier, in this small bay. Therefore, sheltering bathers from the most agitated waters.
Less than 400 meters to north, by the sea, lies the football field of . Around the area exist several cultivated fields. The Fortim da Areosa1 or Castelo Velho2 and two old wind mills complete the landscape.
