Praia da Apúlia
Located a few kilometres south of Esposende, on the far side of the river Cavado is the long sandy beach of Apúlia. Backed by a low promenade and small village there are plenty of facilities at Apúlia - which is what you would expect of a Blue Flag beach. During the summer season the beach is patrolled by lifeguards making it a good family choice.
Apúlia's most iconic feature are a number of old windmills set in the dunes at the northern end of the beach. These no longer have their sails and have been converted into accommodation.
