About the Beach

What is Praia da Leirosa Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
432000
days for the end of bathing season

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 Figueira da Foz.

Praia da Leirosa Beach has a sand with an extension if about 2 Km, bounded south by a small watercourse. There's a pier dividing it in the middle.
To the north, flows the Rego do Meio d'Água1.
A wide dune system and the Mata Nacional da Leirosa2 beautify this scenery.
The downside comes in the form of a very unpleasant smell arising from two colossal pulp mills in the vicinity: Celbi-Celulose Beira Industrial and Soporcel-Soc. Portuguesa de Papel.
