Blue Flag

Praia de Francemar Beach presents an extensive and flat sand.
This piece of shore is served by a network of walkways which is the main ally of a broad, well preserved and full of vegetation.
To the north lies the mouth of one of the most beautiful watercourses of Vila Nova de Gaia, the Ribeira de Canelas. The water volume flowing here is steady, providing the growth of vegetation around the stream.
