Vila Praia de Âncora


A genuine fishing community and synonym of one of northern Minho’s most well known beaches, Vila Praia de Âncora’s tourist potentialities, together with a gastronomy where seafood prevails, make this a very sought out destination. Close to the mouth of the Âncora River and sheltered by the forest with the same name, you’ll find the Gelfa beach, very popular among surfers. The animated summer life is balanced out by the mild and calm winters. Close to the ocean and the river, Vila Praia de Âncora’s charm is also evident in the landscape that surrounds it, with the striking Calvário Mountain, and in the cultural richness of its history.
