The new Santa Cruz Youth Hostel is awaiting you! Inaugurated in July 2013, this Hostel promises to be a haven for young and old.
The exceptional natural beauty of its beaches, confirmed by the many laurels bestowed upon them annually, and a variety of daytime and night-time entertainment, makes Santa Cruz one of the most popular seaside resorts in the região Oeste(Western region of Portugal).
Santa Cruz and its surroundings are endowed with a collection of mostly extensive and golden-sandy, pristine beaches, outlined by majestic cliffs.
There are over 20 beaches along the Torres Vedras coastline. You will have a great choice of options for a refreshing swim in the Atlantic Ocean or simply somewhere to rest your body while sunbathing, some beaches are in the vicinity of appealing forests, perfect for a pleasant picnic or restful nap.
If it’s a grey day, which may happen, you always have the chance to pay a visit to the Lourinhã Museum and see the biggest Iberian collection of dinosaur fossils.
