Areia Beach

Also known as Portinho da Areia, this beach is characterised by being the only sand beach on the island of Corvo. The beach is formed by small grains that originate in the decomposition of volcanic rocks, in volcanic ash and in myriads of small shells of sea creatures that, for thousands of years, have built up in this sheltered spot of the coast.
