Praia do Beliche, 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.

  • Can confidently say this was one of the best beaches I’ve ever been to. Clean. Incredible scenery. Not too busy. Hardly any tourists except for me (sorry). Even the little restaurant nearby serves up a perfect meal after a long day at the beach.
  • Pretty rough sea the day we went but that's good for all the surfers who are enjoying a ride there. It's quite difficult to go swimming there but anyway it's a beautiful beach with a surf school and rental. They also have a little restaurant and bar there
  • One of the most beautiful beaches in the algarve region. It get busy in summer, however still amazing. When occur, surf is also very good. Love it
  • Nice beach. We enjoyed our self made dinner here while the sun disappeared behind the rocks and the lights of the lighthouse appeared at the sky.
  • Beautiful beach. Easy access if you have a car. Cafe on beach — surf rentals and massage on beach too. TIP: Parking can fill up — go early or late.
