About the Beach

What is Praia de Cacela Velha 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 Vila Real de Santo António (West).

Praia da Cacela Velha Beach has a very long sand of about 1,7 Km. The dune string becomes wider while the river narrows to the east.
This is the most eastern beach in the 1.
At the opposite margin of the canal, can be sighted the 2 and the 3 mouth, where its margins hold an important fossil deposit.
Access is done by boat from the fishing village, through the east neighboring beach sand or during low tide.
