Fodor's Expert Review Praia do Guincho

Guincho Beach Fodor's Choice

Cars often line either side of the road behind Guincho Beach on weekends, and surfers can always be seen braving its waves regardless of the season or prevailing weather conditions. The undertow can be dangerous, and even accomplished swimmers have had to summon lifeguards. If you prefer something more sedate, this beach—with the Serra da Sintra serving as a backdrop—is an ideal spot to watch the sunset. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: sunset; surfing; windsurfing.
