Praia do Relógio

Maritime beach

Throughout the first half of the 20th century, Figueira da Foz was one of the main bathing resorts in Portugal, popular among well off families from across the north of the country. Nowadays, despite having lost some of its former prominence, it remains a bustling, cosmopolitan city.

The broad sweep of sand bordering the Avenida 25 de Abril coast road includes various beaches but only Relógio (Clock) Beach, named after the nearby clock tower, was awarded the European Blue Flag in 2011. The sands are spacious enough to provide room for a range of sporting facilities which are used for various international competitions such as the Mini Beach Football World Cup while the sea, with its strong waves, regularly hosts surfing, sailing and power boat events.
