005: Waves beating rocks
Porto, Portugal’s second city, is located at the Atlantic Ocean. While the historic center is located at the margins of the Douro River, at some kilometers from the ocean, Foz do Douro is located at the mouth of the river, where it meets the ocean. The city itself doesn’t host many beaches, the nearest place is Espinho, at about 25 km south of Porto. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy beach moments in Foz do Douro. The small beach, with clumps of rocks spread along the shoreline, provides beautiful views of the ocean, especially during sunset, and also spectacular view of ocean waves beating the shoreline rocks, as seen in the photo.
