Guide of incredible beaches in Sintra

This is a comprehensive list of the amazing beaches of Sintra located north of the Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Portugal and Europe. There are options for everyone: watersports addicts, fishing enthusiasts, naturist or regular bathers. You will find small enclosed spots or wide open sand strips, hidden beauties hard to access, and popular turist must-sees. Some of these are worth a peek even outside the summer period, for the amazing sights of the atlanctic coastline. So dig in, mark your favourites and vamos a la playa!

The classics

These are the beaches everyone knows, which means they will tend to be the most crowded, but also that you're more likely to find supervision, facilities and towns close by.

The hidden wonders

The secret spots of amazing sights, the peaceful gems of nature or simply the naturist beaches. These are usually isolated and harder to get to but always worth the extra effort.
