Lying at the foot of the Sintra hills and facing the Atlantic, this superb beach is not only ideal for wind surfing but also board surfing due to the large breakers.

This is a wonderful beach that deserves a visit even in a cold cloudy day. You get to see some stunning views. At the left of the beach there’s a restaurant with a pool. That part of the shore is rocky but still wonderful.

This beach is along the coastal road and it's an immens beach , ideal and it is the preferred one for the windsurfers, as the wawes are very high, some times it's dangerous, and care must be taken, there are strong under water currents

Lovely sandy beach but very busy in the summer with tourists and locals. You can rent paddle boards there and swim with some delicious sea food restaurants near by.

In particular, try the restaurant at Estalagem do Forte Muchaxo or Fortelza do Guincho. This latter place has the Michelin star, but for lunch is not OTT
