Beach at São Pedro de Moel


FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

The beach and town of São Pedro de Moel is 9 km from the town of Marinha Grande and roughly 20 km from Leiria.
From the town of Marinha Grande there is a bicycle path straight to the beach which accompanies the road and goes straight through the pine forests that have given Leiria it’s place in history.

São Pedro de Moel is a small, friendly town that distinguishes itself thanks to it’s architecture and heritage and during the summer months it becomes a lively little town centered around it’s large beach and cultural heritage.

The small town of São Pedro de Moel has a lot of  history and its most famous story is the one of the count and countess of Vila real.
The town was given to the count of Vila Real in 1463 and the family of the count owned several houses close to the beach. The family of the count of vila real remained in São Pedro de Moel until 1641 when the last count was executed after being caught trying to warn his father about possible danger to a conspiracy plan his father was making together with a group of accomplices. The last counts wife, Duquesa de Caminha, was heart broken after the death of her husband and she mourned him on the rock overlooking the beach.
This rock now holds the lighthouse.

The poet Afonso Lopes Vieira had his home in the town and this is now a museum.

The beach is roughly 20km from the famous beach of Nazare and it’s surrounded by other popular beaches, this one we choose because of the charming village of São Pedro de Moel and it’s relative quietness. It’s also a beach with a history.
The beach at São Pedro de Moel has lifeguards, warning flags and surfing possibilities, also places to relax, have a good meal or get active in the waves of the Atlantic ocean.
