What is Praia do Penedo 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 Penedo Beach has a very lbroad sand located in the mouth of a small valley.
The existing dune system goes through the valley and spreads to east.
This remote beach is much appreciated by surfers.
When the rainfall increases, a small stream begins to flow.
