The popular Praia do Guincho (also called Praia Grande do Guincho) is a large and wide sand strip between large cliffs. It is considered one of the best portuguese beaches, with crystal-clear water, clean sand, and a landscape of great geological importance. The sea here sometimes has strong currents, and the location is very exposed to wind, but in the right conditions Guincho is a great option for a day at the beach. Watersports fans and world championships are regulars here, be it for surf, windsurf or kitesurf. The beach has supervision, toilets, showers and medical support, and there are several restaurants around. Getting here from the main road is very easy, there is a free parking lot and access to the sand is done by stairs or ramp.
