The name...koralbeach

 

Restaurant bar Coral

 

This is the name of a singular beach near Viana do Castelo. It was formed after building the North breakwater protecting the entrance of the harbour. Before of that,  this place is a largest space of rocks named "Gamboas", where the fishermen catch in low water, little fish, poulpe, mussel and other kinds of shellfish, carried during the high tide.

Because of the structures made in the harbour, a great quantity of sand retired from the river Lima to open the chanel to the New Harbour was deposited over this rocks made the first part of the beach.

 

 

Hauling up the Koralbulker

 

After that, the currents inside the harbour carried other type of sand, more light and thin, made the actual beach.

In the area north bound of the beach was installed the Industrial Zone, where the little industries,  commerce and some services issued from the town, was lodged in new buildings.

The name Koralbeach become visible after the ship Koral Bulker wreck in the rocks of the North breakwater outside of the beach, in 25 December 2000.

 

 

 Unriging the Koralbulker on the beach.

 

On the picture up we can see the two big cranes used to unrig the ship during a long time.

It was an operation very dificult and envolved a lot of means to hauling up the ship from the sea to the land.
