About the Beach

What is Prainha 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.

Prainha Beach has a very small sand with the shape of a seashell.
The surrounding cliff protects it from the wind and transforms it into a cosy corner.
Nearby, flows the Ribeira do Barranco de Vale Figueira1.
In order to attend this beach it is necessary to pay attention to tidal periods, since the sea covers all the beach during high tide.
The access is through the sand of the north neighboring beach, during low tide.
