What to do in Viana do Castelo

Discover where to surf in Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

Viana do Castelo, is located in the mouth of the river Lima, and offers a number of beaches which, in most cases, are excellent choices for sports such as surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing and body boarding.

The most popular beach for these sports is Praia of Cabedelo, since this area benefits from wind "on-shore" (from sea to land throughout the year), which makes it the ideal place to learn to surf and also for the intermediate level surfers to have fun.

Other beaches of Viana do Castelo where you can practice these sports are: Beach Arda and Beach Afife, where the waves hit easily the 2 m. in height.

Slightly further away, about 17 miles south of Cabedelo is Esposende, where you can also practice some good kitesurfing or traditional surfing, although the conditions here are very mercurial.

In the immediate area of Praia of Cabedelo beach there are several shops that specialize in kitesurfing, surfing and paddle surfing, where you can buy, sell and rent equipment for the practice of your favorite sport. In addition, some also feature a workshop where you can repair your equipment.
