Best beach and spot for water sport (surf, kite, paddle)
Jul. 2021
The best spot to surf, good waves, beach break.
In the morning, some wind but no curent.
In the afternoon, little wind but some curent to the left.
Wave 1,00m, sometime 1,20m.
No tube but funny
But good spot.

Great beach - water too cold for swimming
Jul. 2020
It is a fabulous sandy beach, for the most part, with two cafes and one restaurant just behind the beach at the start. You can walk along, as we did in late July, for an hour or more, and in 15 minutes there were very few people.

We thought that the beach was just as good, if not nicer, than many of the beaches we know in Fuerteventura.

The only problem was that, even at the very end of July, the water was too cold for swimming. We noticed that there was no one swimming, though there were one of two surfers in wet suits.

There was a lovely cool, almost too cool, breeze on the day we were on the beach. Beware, the next day there was a very cool fog along the coast and this meant that the beach was too cold and not a good idea.

The little boat across the river from Viana goes every hour and cost 1.50 Euros per person. If there are enough people waiting it goes more frequently.

Windsurf paradise
Aug. 2019
If you like windsurf (or Kitesurf) this is a paradise on earth. Wind is almost certain between April and May and you can chose between flatwater or waves. There also a lot of other activities around for the family members that do not like windsurfing.

Lovely afternnon in August
Aug. 2019
We visited here the otherr day and were suprised how picturesque it looked. We walked around the town to begin with as there are a few monuments such as churches, statues etc to see. We then walked along the promenade which can be rather windy as the winds blow in fron the Atlantic. The promenade is very long but has lovely views over the sea and restaurants and cafes that run alongside. There is also an outdoor swimming pool that proved to be very popular. A nice place to visit without teh crowds!

Fine sandy beach with nice simple cafes but can be windy
Jun. 2019 • Couples
This is a very fine beach and a great place to go if you fancy a bit of time on the sand but there are some caveats. Firstly it faces into the Atlantic and can be pretty windy and the sea is extremely bracing to put it mildly so go prepared. It’s also just outside the port so look one way along the coast and you see a spectacular arc of gently sloping beach with dunes behind. Look the other way though and you see an immense wind turbine and various cranes on the docks which does impair the overall impact a bit but not a lot. There 2 simple partly covered cafes on the beach where you Dan get sandwiches coffee and a beer as well as somewhere sheltered to sit. Behind are a purple of bigger cafes with a fuller food offering. You can also learn to kite surf and the constant breeze makes it a very good place to give it a try. Overall we loved it despite the caveats.

Right next to Viana do Costelo
Apr. 2019 • Couples
This is a lovely beach, just on the S side of the Rio Lima, in Viano de Costelo. It is popular with local folks, and especially with surfers, windsurfers, and kiteboarders. I suspect it would be quite crowded in the summer.
For serious surfing, head north to Afife, where the rollers are bigger, and the beach broader without as many rocks.

Nice beach
Jul. 2018 • Couples
A nice beach, especially if you're into water sports. The windy situation makes it ideal for kitesurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding... and this is just next to Viana do Castelo, a beautiful and interesting city that is worth a visit.

A very beautiful beach.
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We came to this beach by a very good boardwalk. The beach is so clean and the sand is lovely. There are a few beach bars dotted around that looked very nice. There are quite a few walks round this beach and the setting is beautiful. There is also plenty of parking.

Cape Cod in Portugal?
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We stayed at the Hotel FeelViana, a short boardwalk stroll away from this gem of a beach in Northern Portugal. Its a kiteboarding and windsurfing Mecca, with a decent surf break on the southern end. Dune protected, the wide soft sand beach reminded me of the east coast of the US. The only down side is the cold Atlantic water, which is OK for a dip but better for lying in the warm sun, watching the kiteboarders, and sipping a cold Super Bock.
