Praia da Granja is a FEE Blue Flag beach located in the Northwest of Portugal, and belongs to the Vila Nova de Gaia municipality, Porto District. This place is also located in the town of São Félix da Marinha . The northern boundary of the beach is bordered by the Ribeira da Granja.
The word Granja means Farm. The geographical location of Granja came from a Bishop Farm situated there in 1758. It belonged at that time to the "Crúzios" Monks and Priests. They used it on hot days as a place to rest and introspect. Portuguese poet Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, who was from Porto, spent the summertime there with her family in their beach house mansion by the sea. The city of Espinho can be found to the south, while the cities of Porto and Gaia can be found to the north.

Great beach. Need to walk a bit to be able to enter the water due to rocks.

Nice place, cold, north water, nice beach. On weekends the street is a bit crowded, making the access a bit complicated for a quick visit.
