Water sports in Caminha for the whole family
The proximity to the coast that characterizes the region of Caminha, besides being synonymous with great natural beauty, is conducive to a number of activities involving the sea. This is, naturally, why this is a fishing area par excellence, with a gastronomy rich in fresh fish and seafood.
However, the beaches and the coast of Caminha are also known for the various water activities they can offer. It is no coincidence that, more and more, athletes seek the waves of the Minho coast, which in addition to being quieter areas in terms of tourist flow, are also beautiful places, with much to offer.
Surfing is the sport that stands out when we talk about water sports in Caminha. Waves of various types, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, attract practitioners of all nationalities, who find groups and entities that organise days well spent in the water. AnchorPoint, in Vila Praia de Âncora, is an example of these groups, which also help with the hire of surfing equipment if you've gone on holiday unprepared.
The beaches of Foz do Minho, Moledo, Vila Praia de Âncora or Gelfa, all belonging to the municipality of Caminha, are very popular for their therapeutic properties (due to the strong presence of natural iodine from the sea), but also for the sports that can be done there. Because they are relatively windy areas, activities such as windsurfing, stand-up paddle or sailing are common in the region, and there are places that offer beginners and advanced classes in this sport. If you want to become a windsurfing ace, AnchorPoint gives its training sessions on the beach of Vila Praia de Âncora.
If kitesurfing or bodyboarding are your preferences, you should know that the Caminha region is worth a visit. In fact, the Moledo Bodyboard Fest event was created, precisely, to promote this sport practice and usually gathers, annually, thousands of national enthusiasts and internationally renowned sportsmen to celebrate bodyboard. The characteristics of the waves of the Caminha coast, for its diversity, quality and safety, are really one of the highlights of the region.
