Praia Grande, Sintra

4.5
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Sintra Municipality
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.

  • Photos with this horrible complex do not do justice to the spectacular beach we saw! The title tells a lot of lovely experience we have experienced. We arrived at dusk and we sat on the beach to enjoy it. Once finished the spectacle of nature started the culinary show at Bar do Fundo (precisely, down to the beach).
