Praia Grande, Sintra
(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Surfers from all over the world flock to Praia Grande for its moderately large waves and fun atmosphere. This sandy shoreline offers year-round swells and more opportunities for water sports like skimboarding and bodyboarding. With such a long stretch, it's easy to find a space to yourself on the sand or on the waves. Although the waters are slightly colder than on southern beaches, visitors will find plenty of amenities available for a comfortable beach visit. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for rent, and restaurants are steps past the sand.

  • The Large Beach is perfect especially when there's a lot of people. But because it's so beautiful it's very nice to go in costume, even if it's in the winter, without rain. It's not like the beaches of costa da Caparica or Algarve, Alentejo, or even all of them also with his qualities. Here is more unstable and is usually very windy in the morning, as the Ericeira. As the name indicates, is great. The sand is clean, thin. The waters are cool and great for those who like to surf!

  • Spectacular super spacious room overlooking the sea in-room Wi-Fi Sportv just not excellent due to the dinner we had there we asked mãrisco rice came super spicy boring still said the seafood rice was always spicy and this had very little spicy (I ate rice with seafood in many places and never too spicy) summarizing paid 50 € for the rice we can't eat seafood is just used to drink

  • Great stop for a coffee and enjoy the surfers, or learn to surf. Waves are big and cliff is beautiful.
