Praia do Beliche, Sagres

Categories: Outdoor Activities
Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Visit obliged. We went with the children for that surfearan. An idyllic beach with a good bar. The only bad thing if something in the car, you forget the stairs

  • Beach with access more or less difficult, of great beauty and clear waters. Located between the village of Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, is the first South-facing beach of the Algarve coast!. Much frequented by surfers. Fantastic sunset and full and colors ...

  • 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 !
  • Beautiful beach with lots of caves, providing some natural shade. Steep steps down to the beach but worth it!
  • Best beach in the area. Highly recommended.
  • Cool Beach!
