With three estuaries, the Minho, Coura and Âncora Rivers are some of the municipality’s most privileged locations, with inviting and unforgettable characteristics: an intact fauna and flora, crystalline waters for refreshing dips or for practicing aquatic sports, extensive margins decorated with water and windmills, and where taking a stroll is a pleasure. The beauty of the water joins the green of landscapes like the Pinhal da Gelfa, adorned with brave pine trees to lose sight of, among other equally interesting species such as cork oaks, plane trees, elms, poplars and tame pines.Thanks to the shade provided by the trees and the rich environment surrounding them, the Camarido Pine-Grove is also a wonderful place to take a walk, go for a bicycle ride, have a picnic or even camp out – the camping park nearby is one of the region’s best.  To discover all this natural heritage, there is a network of 5 pedestrian routes and the ecological trails of the Atlantic (Foz do Minho Beach, Sargaceiro Path and Camboas Path), Minho River Path (Seixas and Lanhelas) and Cristelo, besides The cycle path of Foz do Rio Âncora and the pedestrian and cycle path of Santo Isidoro in Moledo.A pleasure worthwhile discovering…
