The Atlantic Coast of Portugal

Beach Boardwalk up close in Porto, Portugal.

Today I'd like to take you to a different beach along the Atlantic coast. It's roughly 10° south of Rossbeigh Beach and over 1000 km away. Located on the Iberian Peninsula in the north-west of Portugal lies the city of Porto.

I visited in September a few years ago. Blue skies and blue waters dressed the Atlantic coast. The waves crashed over the rugged rocks protruding from the sandy and stony beaches. The ocean breeze was more welcome here than back at home.

My Portuguese experience was not limited to beaches and boardwalks. I have so many photos to share. From the beautiful city of Porto to the natural surroundings of Braga and plenty close up flora.
The most memorable part of my trip was canoeing on The Tâmega river and of course... the roast chicken.
