About the Beach

What is Praia do Canal Beach?

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Aljezur.

Praia do Canal Beach presents a very long sand of about 1,5 Km. The Ribeira do Barranco do Canal1 flows at the north side, next to the large open area for car parking.
At the center and south there are some immersed rock formations in the bathing area. Therefore, the best area for bathing is near the stream mouth.
The access is done by exiting Estrada Nacional 2682, heading west, just before crossing Estrada Nacional 1203.
