PORT OF PORTOCELO

DescriptionThe name comes from the Latin Portus Celo, or hidden port. This is because the port is in a hidden location at the end of the inlet of the same name, and forms a bottle neck to reach a beach of white sand and pebbles with gentle swell. There are two independent areas of sand (Canelas and Portocelo) that join when the tide is low. Accidents are most frequent at Roncadoira Point, where there is a lighthouse, as this is the most northerly end of this stretch of coast, Punta da Mansa point and Punta Saíñas point. There is also a small group of islets very near the coast called Os Netos, which are located between Punta de Mansa point and Punta Saíñas point.
