Praia do Beliche, Sagres

4.9
#1 of 17 in Outdoors in Sagres
Outdoor Activity
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.

  • Nice quiet beach which is sheltered from the wind when you're looking at a washed out day. 30 mins from Lagos and if you fancy, in high season, there's a cafe there.
  • Amazing looking water and it feels isolated between the beautiful cliffs around the beach.
  • 150 steps, last half steep. Worth it. Gorgeous beach.
  • Fantastic place. Especially for surfers. Great views all around.
  • One of my favorite Places in Portugal! The waves are most time more funwaves, but still good! Holiday begins here!

Where to stay in Sagres

Portugal's most southwestern point, Sagres is a little isolated in terms of its surroundings but offers a range of lodging options. Head south of the city center to the neighborhoods of Tonel and Baleeira to be close to the surrounding beaches. You can indulge in an upscale hotel either on the beach or within easy walking distance that provides sweeping ocean views, comfortable rooms, and plenty of opportunities to relax poolside. You'll also find a wealth of apartments and villas here, which can accommodate larger groups and provide a bit more privacy than the hotel scene.
