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 Matosinhos.

Praia do Facho Beach is situated immediately north from a place called Cabo do Mundo. It is mainly comprised by rock formations along its whole length.
To the south, channeled beneath the road and beach rocks at seaside, empties the Ribeira de Joane1.
The beach is little appreciated by bathers due to the predominance of rocks here existing.
Access is done by Rua de Almeiriga Norte2.
