About the Beach

What is Praia do Areal Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
10976400
days for the start 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 Lourinhã.

Praia do Areal Beach is also known as Praia da Areia Sul Beach, according to the Plano de Ordenamento da Orla Costeira Alcobaça-Mafra1.
The sand is very extensive and sea conditions are very favorable for surf practice.
In the north area there's a small dune system and at center and south, a cliff claims the scenery.
A dirt open area used for car parking lies beside Aeródromo da Lourinhã2.
The main access to the beach is done by the north side despite the existence of a trail down the cliff to the south in an area known by Praia do Mexilhoal Beach.
