1. Bikini/Shorts

Go to Gerês and not take your bathing suit is like to go to Paris and not see the Eiffel Tower. To understand the Gerês essence, you need to feel the therapeutic crystal waters sensation.

2. Towel

Spread the towel on a rock and, like a lizard, enjoy the silence and the sun shining on your skin.

3. Sunscreen

Summer in Gerês is very hot (normally more 3/4 degrees than Porto) so it`s very important have a good skin protection. You don`t want to look like a lobster after the tour.
