Viana do Castelo is a small town with a population of 46000. It was mainly a fishing town and still boasts a coastal fishing industry of some importance in Portugal. A ferry or the bridge takes visitors across the river to the beautiful pictoresque sandy beach of Praia Cabedelo that stretches as far south as the popular holiday resort of Esposende. In Spring/Summer Cabedelo beach is destination for kitesurfers and windsurfers from all over europe. It's big bay with 2 rocky piers and no obstacles offers a scenic spot to ride. The few crowds, lot of space and absence of obstacles make Cabedelo a very safe spot too.
