Praia da Franquia

Praia da Franquia is one of Vila Nova de Milfontes main beaches. Tucked away from the coast on the northern bank of the River Mira, this is probably the most sheltered beach in the area. This makes it a great family beach, as do all the facilities such as a lifeguard service and beach cafe / bar etc. Praia da Franquia also benefits from being located close to the town.

Given its sheltered aspect water sports such as windsurfing and canoeing are particularly popular here. 

Unsurprisingly the beach here is popular and can get pretty busy in the summer. This is compounded by the fact that as the tide comes in the area of sand is dramatically reduced.
