Owner description: Lying at the foot of the Sintra hills and facing the Atlantic, this superb beach is not only ideal for wind surfing but also board surfing due to the large breakers.

Very good beach, clean, a little bit windy, very good for wind sports, have a great view over Sintra woods and mountain. You will love it for sure!

This beach is amazing for kitesurfing and windsurfing. It is therefore not the most ideal place if your objective is simply to sunbathe, unless you dig yourself a hole in the sand to sit in. It is 12kms from Cascais, which I did by bike, and the coast and landscape is beautiful. There are a couple places there to grab a drink but nothing more. So if you are looking for a party beach, as I was misled to believe it was, this is not the place!

One of my favorite beaches! Amazing view/scape, one of the best for surfing. The water is a bit cold and sea strong, but I love it! In a day without wind, and this beach is Perfect!

A huge beach with lots of room. The sea is cold but you can hire wetsuits. It was great to watch the surfers, kite surfer and windsurfers. Quite a show.

I love this beach. One of my favorites in the world. It is more ruggedly beautiful than many Portuguese beaches, but amazing. It can, however, often be windy so if you are going to sunbath a wind break may be a good idea.
