It does have a SQL Formatter. Although the more complex the SQL statements get, the less reliable it works (because the formatter is not doing a complete logical parsing of the statements). And - being a DBMS independent tool - it will not recognize all possible Oracle specific constructs either.

If by "Code Beautifier" you mean a formatter for PL/SQL programs, then the answer to that is no.
