Nice place to walk on the beach and enjoy the beautiful coastline.
Have a look at the nice swimmingpool of the hotel next to the beach. And have a drink or eat something ine the little restaurant in the bend just before getting to the beach. Place to park your car and a small playground for children. nice view over there!

The beach at Praia Grande is great - quite long and good to walk along or to surf / bodyboard. Unfortunately, the row of shops and bars behind the beach are little neglected to look at and give the place a bit of a run down feeling. It can get quite windy here too.

If you want to catch some waves you must go to this beach! It has some really good waves (I'm a surfer, I know what I'm talking about), it is near Lisbon and you might as well see some surf or bodyboard champioships. The weather is hard to predict here, so you might arrive there on Summer and it's foggy as in winter.

Our favourite beach in the Sintra area. Admittedly the sea is a bit rough but we had hours of fun jumping the big waves & watching the surfers. Parking is a bit tricky - really busy in the afternoon. My advice would be to park up as soon as you see the cars ramped up on the side of the road. Going further is generally a waste of time.

Generally speacking... cold waters and huge waves! This is one of the favourite beaches among surfers and bodyboarders.
Be patient as it is very difficult to find a place to park the car but be sure that it worth the wait.
You can walk by the sea, try a bath, or visit the dinosaur fossils on the beach's south cliff and fin a sequence of eleven dinosaur footsteps.
And do finish your day with "Ameijoas à Bolhão Pato" , "Percebes" and Fish Soup in Angra Restaurant by the sea.
