Viana do Castelo is one of the most beautiful cities in the north of Portugal. Its involvement in the Portuguese Discoveries and, later on, cod fishing shows its traditional connection to the sea. In the city’s surroundings, you can take a bicycle ride on the cycle paths along the coast or the river or a walk on one of the many marked trails, as well as practise surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing and bodyboarding on the golden sandy beaches. There are also opportunities for jet skiing, sailing, rowing and canoeing on the River Lima. Is characterised by wild beaches that are popular with surfers and windsurfers alike. The beaches north of Viana do Castelo are among the country's prettiest, in particular the stretch at the fishing town of Vila Praia de Ancora and Moledo, which offers calm water for swimmers. Protected from harsh winds off the Atlantic by the Serra d'Arga hills to the north and the Monte de Santa Luzia to the south, it is particularly popular with bathers during the summer.
