Galé Beach - Portugal

In this beach you can appreciate fossil cliffs, some old formations from the plio-Quaternary age (less than 5 million years), consisting of clay sandstones, generally little permeable. The erosive effect of seepage water promotes the intense gullying across the face of the cliff, which gives it a unique look.
