About the Beach

What is Praia do Caniçal Beach?

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.
