Whether watching from the clifftop or at sea level, the grandeur and sheer power of these waves, some of the highest ever surfed in the world, is undeniable. They peak in November-December, when surfers from all over the world descend to try to break the world record.

This looks beautiful even from the clifftop. The waves were spectacular crashing on the beach in a flurry of foam even though the sea was not very rough. Lots of spray flying in the air and mini rainbows can be seen just before the waves break.

...but a great beach with decent surf and few people the rest of the year. Definitely worth a visit.

Best views are obtained from the Nazaré Lighthouse. This is a beautiful beach but I would not recommend you get in it unless you are an experienced swimmer!

Las mejores vistas se obtienen desde el faro de Nazaré. Es una playa hermosa pero no recomendaría nadar en ella a menos que tengas experiencia nadando!

What a beautiful beach!

We visited in August so we did not see the big waves but what we did see was just lovely.

The water is crystal clear and the beach sandy is light and fluffy.

Will visit again!

We parked at the top where the sign is and it was quite a long walk to the beach. We passed the statue and just kept walking. There weren't any huge waves when we were there (season) but it is a beautiful beach.

The shoreline of Nazare is sort of in three sections. There's the tourist beach south of the fortress, the area around the fortress where the huge waves roll in, and the north beach or Praia do Norte. The north beach seems like the perfect place for a surfing fanatic to pitch a tent. For the rest of us, I don't think it offers much that cannot be enjoyed on the primary city beach.

Very nice wild beach in Nazare. If you are traveling without car, first take a funicular from Nazare beach, and then go down on foot to Praia da Norte. Last time I came here, waves were not so big, but still I enjoyed the ocean and the sun a lot. If you want to see the big waves, it’ s better to come in early autumn or early winter.
