About the Beach

What is Praia do Caniçal 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 Lourinhã.

Praia do Caniçal Beach displays a very long sand, located in the south part of a bay. It is bounded in the ends by rock formations.
The impressive dark cliff, topped by farm land, gives this beach an uncommon beauty. From the top, the view is wonderful and it's possible to sight the 1, built in 1674.
Access is achieved through Estrada do Paimogo2, coming from village.
