Geocache Description:


Esta praia estabelece o limite entre os concelhos de Alcobaça e Nazaré. O acesso para a Falca surge da estrada florestal paralela à costa, existindo, na mesma, alguns metros para Sul, um acesso alternativo. Poderá ainda chegar a esta zona da estrada florestal a partir da EN 242, seguindo as indicações para a praia da Légua.

Uma agradável zona de pinhal envolve o reduzido conjunto de habitações e a praia, a qual não possui qualquer tipo de infra-estruturas. Assim, não existe um acesso definido para o imenso areal, mas antes vários trilhos que serpenteiam na encosta envolvente.

Nesta, a biodiversidade vegetal é considerável, apesar da acácia e do chorão marcarem presença. No vale, a água e o vento moldaram formas curiosas, que, de perto, nos transportam para outros mundos. As gaivotas aproveitaram este cenário quase selvagem, formando um enorme bando, que até dispõe de bebedouro, pois uma pequena ribeira desagua na praia. Os pescadores são visitantes frequentes da Falca, optando, acertadamente, pelo acesso existente na praia da Légua.


This beach establishes the limit between the municipalities of Alcobaça and Nazaré. The access to Falca beach is possible through the forest road parallel to the coast, also existing there, a few meters to the south, an alternative access. You can also arrive at this area through the National Road EN 242, following the road signs to praia da Légua.

A pleasant pine forest area enclosures a reduced number of houses and the beach, which does not have any kind of infrastructures. There is no defined access to this immense sandy beach, only several twining tracks surrounding the hill.

At this place, the vegetable biodiversity is considerable, despite the fact that the acacia and weeping-willow are a regular presence. In the valley, the water and the wind have moulded curious forms that, seen from near, transport us to different worlds. The seagulls took advantage of this almost savage scenery, forming a huge flock, that even disposes of a drinking fountain as a small bank flows into the beach. Fishermen are Falca’s frequent visitors, rightly choosing the access that exists at praia da Légua.
