About the Beach

What is Praia da Mesquita 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 Lagoa.

Praia da Mesquita Beach has a medium sized sand.
Here is possible to observe the beauty of two rocky islets that excel off the waters, a few distance from shore, and two natural arches sculpted into the chalky rock reminding ancient roman architecture.
The cliff top is illustrated by pines and several trails ending in the access to the beach, or by the car parking located near the neighboring beach to the east.
