Big waves and wide sandy swaths make Praia da Nazare one of the most popular spots along the country's Atlantic coastline. Due to its geography and strong ocean currents, this beach often sees monster breakers in excess of 20 m (78 ft), a huge draw for some of the world's top surfers. In addition to record-breaking waves, the beach offers easy access to the nearby town of Nazare, a busy tourist resort packed with trendy shops and award-winning seafood restaurants. The current is extremely strong here, even on calm days, so watch out for the really big swells, and keep an eye on the weakest swimmers in your party.

I had never visited Nazare and I was surprised at the cleanliness and the length of the beach. The beach front has everything you need to enjoy the day even if you don't like sand. If you follow the..... more »
Amazing place to relax and enjoy a stupendous beach scene with natural beauty that's indescribable. Swim area is away from rip currents so follow markings to stay safe. Includes sand soccer fields and volleyball courts to enjoy open to public and a full beach sports stadium with European pro events/tournaments held there in the summer. Can surf or learn to surf if you're a beginner in the gentle summer waves or challenge yourself in the winter for the big ones. Either way can relax away an entire day with good food all along the street opposite the sand. Festive fun vacation atmosphere here. Enjoy!!!
My favorite beach in Portugal. Authentic, beautiful, and full of charm. The sun is strong and full. Be sure to rent a cabana to get out of the sun if needed. Strong undercurrent, so careful with the little ones. The night life is busy and worth the walk through the streets. Spend the day at the beach, shopping, cold shower, dinner and drinks, and walk the lively streets. The night clubs really bring things to life. Most don’t go to bed before 4:00am.
We only stopped by on our way from Lisboa to Porto, but the beach was wonderful! Seems like a pleasant tourist resort with beautiful promenade. However the ocean this much north is pretty cold.
Nice beach. Lots of Tourists. Do a walking tour so you get to know the history of the town...its interesting. The surf museum is cool.
Too crowded for my taste (end of July 2019). Loud Music at the Beach until 2 am or 3 am every night. Beautiful setting, though. Ocean swimming nice but very crowded too. A couple of good restaurants here.
