Praia do Beliche, Sagres

(4.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by imposing cliffs, Praia do Beliche is one of the region's most popular beaches for surfing, thanks to its consistent waves. Even if you don't want to surf, you can enjoy the beach by lounging in the sun or exploring the nearby fortress built in the 15th century. Though conditions around the beach are generally rough, the 40 m (131 ft) high cliffs protect it a great deal from wind. Keep in mind that the large waves mean the water is best suited to experienced surfers only. Note that the beach is accessible only via a steep set of stairs down the cliffs. Put Praia do Beliche and other Sagres attractions into our Sagres travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A postcard landscape. A clean beach and a soft sand. Markets are sometimes stiff, but we forget that once downstairs. This period of quiet and relaxing place. The corner of surfers.

  • A very nice sandy beach with great waves. Here were many surfers. To the beach, must go down a very long stairs, but then will be rewarded with a beautiful beach. There are some interesting caves in the rocks. Directly on the beach is a restaurant, where fresh fish and other meats on the charcoal grill.

  • Really nice beach. As everyone says, steep steps down top the bottom. There's also a Surfing school that was train in there when we got there. Waves are beautiful, the cliffs are gorgeous and it's not as windy as some of the other neighboring spots.
  • We were recommended this amazing beach by a local. It was a really windy day, as most days in Sagres are, he told us this beach is protected from the wind. Taking his advice was the best decision we made !! One of the nicest beaches I have ever seen. Incredible sand quality, crystal clear water with a nice steady shore break, breathtaking cliffs and a surprisingly good restaurant for Portugese Chicken. A most for anyone in the Sagres area !
  • Wonderful view, not crowded. Feeling of being "at the end of the world" Don't miss the little restaurant below the cliff
  • Secluded, quiet, amazing beach, great little alcoves
  • Beautiful beach with lots of caves, providing some natural shade. Steep steps down to the beach but worth it!
