Castello / Castelo Beach

Slate and quartz for a beach between headlands

Castelo Beach, in El Franco, is one of the coves carved between the series of capes that sketch the outline of the borough. In the shape of a shell, it is made of quartzite pebbles, the predominant materials being slate and quartz.

With a heavy swell, this is a narrow strip of beach 400 metres long with pedestrian and vehicle access. There is a rest area in the surroundings with a car park. It is the biggest beach in the borough and has first-aid and lifeguard service in the summer season.
