Praia Grande do Rodízio, commonly known as Praia Grande (big beach) is the largest beach on the Sintra coastline. It is one of the most visited all year round because of its beatiful profile, a sea of relative calmness and large, steep cliffs. Surf and bodyboard championships are regularly held here, so watersports fans will surely find it a nice spot. Also, if you take a closer look at the cliffs, you may find the footprints of dinosaurs! The beach is supervised during summer time, there are plenty of small bars and restaurants around and also parking lots.
