Portugal Cemetery of Anchors
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Portugal’s Cemitério das Âncoras, or “Anchor Graveyard”, sprawls across the shifting sand dunes of Barril Beach on Tavira Island. Lined up on edge with near-military precision, hundreds of rusted anchors memorialize southern Portugal’s long-lost tuna fishery and the generations of fisher-folk whose livelihoods vanished along with the fish.
You can't get there by car. It ist possible to walk the way to the beach and the cemetary on the island or you can take the local "tourist train".
