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 great place to surf (or to just hang out and watch the surfers). If you do surf, a wetsuit is a must as the Atlantic can get a little brisk. But, the sand is extensive and a little bit of a cool-down can feel nice if the sun is especially strong on your day here.

Praia Grande or the big beach is a coastal area near Colares that borders on the Atlantic ocean. All the beaches in Portugal are beautiful it is hard to go wrong and so many to see.

October was an unseasonable 35 celcius this year.
