About the Beach

What is Praia do Fragosinho Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
3718800
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 Póvoa de Varzim.

Praia do Fragosinho Beach has a small sand, bounded at the ends by rock formations that create a cove of calmer sea waters, very frequented by bathers. For this reason, it is also attended by fishermen with their fishing vessels.
The beach is also known as Praia do Farol Beach.
Here, it is common to watch people practicing sports on the sand, namely volleyball.
There's a wide open area at the north part serving for car parking.
Access is available along Avenida dos Pescadores1 or by Rua do Agro Velho2.
