Praia Grande, Sintra

(260+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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. Use our Sintra travel itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Praia Grande and other attractions in Sintra.
