Welcome to Pinhal de Leiria


However, over 86% of the 100 sq km protected area along the coast was lost in a devastating fire in October 2017, and 49 people, 1500 homes and 500 businesses were lost. Many of the narrow roads and well-maintained bike paths cutting through the forest are now blocked, although you can still access three really excellent beaches and three resort towns: São Pedro de Moel, 20km west of Leiria, which survived mostly unscathed; Praia da Vieira, 16km north of São Pedro along the coastal highway; and Pedrógão, 2km further north.
