Explore the most beautiful Atlantic beaches in the region, where you’re as likely to spend the day in beach shorts in the sun as a fleece in the café.
Despite their unexpected mists, the beaches of Sintra manage to be truly enchanting. In Praia da Adraga, Praia Grande and Praia das Maçãs, you’ll find resolutely Atlantic beaches with lots of sand and excellent waves. The pure air, beauty of the hills and the train which descends from the centre of Sintra to the beaches are reasons enough to get to know them. Just minutes from Cape Roca is the mythical Ursa beach. Discover the legend and dare to descend, if you have the right footwear. The tranquillity and the view compensate for the effort at this unique beach. And if the sea won’t play along, you can always go for a swim in the pools at Praia Grande or the picturesque town of Azenhas do Mar.
