About the Beach

What is Praia do Buraco 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 do Buraco Beach is located in a small cliff corner and has a reduced size sand. It acquired its name for having a hole digged into the rock, decorated with rolled stones, providing access to the beach. If one's a good swimmer one can easily go around the ends of the cliff to access neighbor beaches.
This is the perfect spot for those who seek some privacy.
