If you're looking for something different from your normal, loud, packed beach, full of yelling kids, look no further! There is no need to say that it's beautiful and an amazing experience as you can see that from the photos. You get to swim in...More

After about a 25 minute drive from Cascais, we arrived to the Ursa beach. It’s a tough walk down to the beach, but once there it is a really nice place to stay at for some hours. Note, there is no sales or infrastructure of...More

nice beach especially if you are photo-lover. Hard to access though, so make sure you plan ahead and have snickers for the down-ride. Water again, is very cold to swim even during summer and it can get really windy as well.

Get there early and you'll have it almost to yourself. It's a pretty little beach with nice rock formations. We saw some guys looking for oysters, maybe and a couple of tenters there, but it was peaceful and pretty.

This spot had such an amazing view. It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. It's a hike down to the actual beach but the view from the top of the cliffs is still spectacular

It's about half an hour by foot from Cabo da Roca. 15 minutes of walking on the top of the cliffs and then 15 minutes steep decline to the beach. And it is so worth it!! It looks unreal, the most beautiful beach I've ever...More

We discovered this gem by chance and it’s one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve seen. You just have to bear in mind that it’s a real hike to get there (20-30 min) so wear good shoes. We were in flipflops which made it all...More
