It was well worth the drive to get to, with free parking, and to sit a lovely spell and watch the waves... They can be huge and so powerful.

This is the best beach i have every been to. Just amazing. The experience is full. Sand and ocean really made nature wonderful. And the pictures you can goolge are real.

This beauty is very hard to reach by public transportation, but, believe me, it is possible. You take a train from Rossio station in Lisbon to Sintra (return ticket is 4.5 euro and it i uploaded on ViaGen card for transport). Train leaves every 20 minutes. Ride is 35-40 minutes. Just in front of Sintra train station, there is a bus terminal. Catch the bus No 403. It goes once per hour. You exit at small place called Almoçegem. Ticket price is 4 euro per person one way.The beach is a 30 minute walk down from Almoçegem. We hithhike on our way back and a couple picked us up to the village. (you can take the same bus from Cascais)

I heard of this beach but wasn't sure it was accessible by public transportation.We went and were not disappointed; this beach has beautiful rock formations. Many people were surfing and sun bathing. We just stayed for a bit after walking here from Cabo da Roca (~5km on fairly easy gravel/dirt roads). We could have eaten here at the bar but we walked another 20 minutes up to Almoçageme and ate a nice restaurant, Pensão Sisudo before taking the bus back to Cascais (Scotturb 403). This bus is probably the easiest way to get to either Cabo da Roca or the Beach of Adragã from either Sintra or Cascais near the train stations.

I'm not sure why this beach isn't more talked about. It is one of the most stunning beaches I've been to anywhere!
Beautiful imposing cliffs on the left (South) a line of huge rocks heading out into the Atlantic on the right (North) and a good km of sandy beach that tends not to be very crowded.
The waves are relentless and unforgiving, at least 20 ft high when already quite close to the beach and primal in their roar. There is a huge boom when a particularly large wave crashes into the cliffs - it made me feel alive!
Very romantic, Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr would have done the scene more justice here.
Tip: as you enter the sea it becomes rocky. The waves are so powerful they push huge rocks up onto the beach then suck them back out again (you can hear them rolling against each other). This can be painful if you're not wearing beach shoes. This isn't a beach that you would go to swim in, more like wade 15ft out and jump over waves, which is even more fun.

I lived in the area for 3 years and every summer I spent most days there with my three children. I never swam because the water was much too cold but my children used to, along with all the other expat children, until they had blue faces. We would bury them in the hot sand to warm them up. The restaurant at the top of the cliff was one of our regular Sunday lunch choices in the winter months - too many people in the tourist season! Very happy memories of my life in the 80's. Ignore the date I chose - it didn't go back far enough!

coming from Greece, i would say that you can find a lot better places to swim in my country! However, this is Portugal so comparing to the country's standards it is a very beautiful spot. Water is freezing though, even in summer months. Nice restaurant nearby for seafood and coffee. Parking is typically not allowed on the road, and there is a private one 100 meters from the beach.

This beach is stunning. The sunset was incredible. It's very easy to drive here and plenty of parking. The beach is beautifully maintained. There is a restaurant and restrooms located in the adjacent parking lot. Note - if you plan to eat at the restaurant, make reservations. We could not get in on two attempts as they were booked.

Remember - this is just a beach, and a small one. But if you’re having a car, and specially if you visited Cabo da Roca, you might want to drive 15 min to the north and visit this special jem. I loved to walk on the beach, even though it was winter, and quite windy. The waves were stunning, and of course I got my feet wet.. 😊 but I enjoyed the breathtaking place. I recon wintertime might be the best place to visit Praya da Adraga, since it might be too crowded in the summer time.

On our Tuk-Tuk tour from Sintra to Cascais, our driver took us here and it was worth every second. The most beautiful beach we visited in Portugal. Because it is out of the way, the least touristy too.

The tiny gem-sized beach at Praia da Adraga misses many of the crowds on nearby beaches because of its size, but it is worth a visit to see the arches at low tide. Scramble on these for a bit, then hike up above the parking lot to the top of the ridge for a great view. You can follow the old signs to the grutas (grottos) to find the roped descent to another tiny, tucked away beach just to the south.
