It is a very big beach with a troubled sea. The only problem is the area that sometimes is very foggy ruining the planned day at the beach

Visited the beach in mid season without tourists and did enjoy every moment there. Cant imagine to go there in the high season. It looked quite crowded in the pictures.

Nice beach if you like some peace and quiet. The beach is quite big, but there are not so many people. A lifeguard is on duty... this is definitly necesarry because the sea is very wild and dangerous. We had a nice time here.

Wild sea, rocky coves, white sand, morning mists, striped awnings, a magical lighthouse, preserved architecture in the middle of the pine forest, São Pedro de Moel has all the charm that Marinha Grande lacks!...Pitty the residual commerce (very few shops, restaurants, cafés, hotels, etc.), but...More
