Praia do Guincho is one of the finest beaches of the Lisbon region, that combines intense surfing with dramatic scenery. Guincho is situated on the western edge of the Serra da Sintra National Park and this designation has protected the remote and wild ambience of the beach from tourist development.
The main attraction of the Praia do Guincho are the massive waves, which roll in from the Atlantic Ocean and, when combined with the near constant breeze, form the ideal conditions for confident surfers. Guincho is the perfect beach for tourists who appreciate nature’s raw power and are willing to travel that bit further for a stunning location. This article will provide a guide to Guincho beach, including facilities and how to travel there.

A nice beach relatively near to Lisbon. We caught the train from Cais do Sodré to Cascais (takes about 40 minutes) and from there took a taxi to Guincho beach (approx €7). It's great for windsurfing/surfing and is not too crowded like the beaches in Cascais.
