Praia da Nazare, Nazare

4.6
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.

  • Even with a lot of wind (storm in the days we were there), the place is beautiful. Old town, but with stunning beaches.

  • The beach of Nazaré is immense, with a large sandy beach and that joins with the sea for its magnificent waves. The arriba naturally carved by the sea and wind is something magnificent to behold is a good place to observe and that makes us stop in time.
