Praia do Beliche, Sagres

4.8
#3 of 21 in Outdoors in Sagres
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.

  • A very beautiful beach, I advise you to watch the sunset on the beach is absolutely beautiful this has access to down

  • Populated by numerous surfers we spent few beautiful hours on this magnificent sandy beach. Certainly the most beautiful beach, we know our Algarve trip could learn. In the western part, you can also easily make NUDIST, and in February it was easily possible to swim a couple of kilometres (with wetsuit).

  • It is a typical Beach in the South of the Portugal, with its cliffs that make it difficult to access. It takes down a series of steps before reaching the sand. It's a popular corner of surfers, because there are some beautiful rolls. The cliffs offer splendid landscapes and the beach is rather large. Perfect to take a break and enjoy a good time with family.

  • Awesome beach with good parking. Check the little cave on the right side (far end)
  • Nice surfing spot. No wind in the bay🤙
  • Great beach, close to caves for exploring. Stairs down are steep but well maintained. No wheelchair access that I saw. No showers, but small changing area down at beach level. Lifeguard was on duty when we were there (Friday afternoon). Several kayaks and paddleboards for rent. The western end is for naturists and nudists. Small restaurant smelled amazing, but gets full quickly.
  • This is a very nice and hidden beach. It seems to be never too crowded. The sand is amazing and the high cliffs behind you will block a lot of the wind. You will have to walk a lot of stairs to get there, but it is worth it.
  • Short walk down some fairly steep steps, past a proper little beech bar/hut where I had some amazing grilled chicken. The beech is fantastic, flat white sands are great for games and clear seas are perfect for swimming. Definitely a must for beech lovers.
