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.

Guincho Beach is a beautiful beach located Cascais and Sintra. The lowlights of the beach are also its highlights: the wind and the waves. This is a surf and windsurf paradise.

Being a very windy beach, it is frequented by surfers and the waves make this perfect for them. It also makes for perfect views of beautiful wild waves crashing in the beach and rocks. Sand is soft and a beautiful yellow allowing comfort whilst walking...More
