Spent a few days at Arribas Hotel. Unfortunately we have had fog during 3 days. No sunset. The beach is wonderful for surfers but not recommended for swimmers and for kids. Rough sea but spectacular.

This beach is beautiful. Explore the corners at low tide, enjoy the waves with a board, or show the dinosaurus footprints to your kids. If you are in the area, go there. The big hotel pool is open to the public, if you want to have a save swim.

Came across this beach driving from Arenhos do Mar to Cabo da Roca. It is nice and wide, and has decent sized waves to enjoy body surfing. Cold though.

We visited this beach on a hot enough day water was freezing but it was still fabulous. The pool is a great feature and added to the beauty I thought. Definitely worth a visit
