I know the place all my life of 57 years . It was always a quiet place to be with my family just enjoying the pleasures of the sea and sand in the sunny days and even all the year . Recently I believe there's a strong need for police presence because I experience - and saw the same bad events with other people - the presence of some delinquency near ordinary people and there families. They where just a few couples but their behavior was a strong motive to alert old people and families.

In the morning it was overcast. This is quite normal for this part of Portugal. It is basically a surfers beach. The waves are powerful and the ocean water is cold. It is a great place to learn to surf or boogie board. There are a few cafes and restaurants close. You are better off going to the Praia de Macas.

We stopped briefly at the beach which on a sightseeing trip and were impressed by the wide expanse of clean sandy beach. Not overly busy on a warm but blustery Monday.

Did a lovely walk from Praia Agraga to Praia Grande. Beautiful vistas along the way. Be sure to go to the stairs and see the dinosaur footprints along the cliff!

Did not spend any time on praia grande beach as it has a big hotel and pool on it. Instead enjoyed the nature to the south.

Praia grande is a big beach after its name. It's a sufing beach as well. Every year, on summer time we have a surf championship. It's a beach where the locals go. It's a family friendly beach.

Praia Grande is a nice sandy beach with beautiful cliffs on the south side and plenty of restaurants. It has public transportation from Sintra. To get to the beach by public transportation you can take the Sintra Tram (also known as the Elétrico) or the bus from the Portela Sintra train station (the bus company in Sintra is SCOTTURB I believe bus 441 or 439 goes to this beach.

Im not a big fan of the beaches on the Sintra coast, but if you are on the Lisbon side and having in mind the nightmare that is to cross the 25 de Abril Bridge in Summer, you are left with not many options. Praia Grande is a big beach with usually strong ondulation, wind is also a normal companion. The beaches from Costa da Caparica are much more pleasant if you can get there. Praia Grande is not particularly beautiful or worth the visit but if you are in the region go for a visit.

Been here fo surfing and waves were powerful. They break quickly so the ride is not too long. Pretty rough for beginners, but can always try the bodyboard!!

We went to a restaurant there for lunch and whjile at it we took a very nice a long walk on the beach. It was November, so no change of swimming, and the specific day was really windy so there were huge waves but the beach is beautiful! Would like to come back during summer time.
