About the Beach

What is Praia da Formosa Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
13654800
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 Torres Vedras.

Praia da Formosa Beach, integrated in Praia de Santa Cruz Beach, has a sand of medium size that is sheltered from winds due to the positioning of the arc-shaped cliff.
The seaside and bathing area are filled with rock formations.
At north, topped by a gazebo, there's the Riba Amarela.
Along the Avenida Alto da Vela1, where exists a support car parking, garden benches give a touch of modern design to the beach.
