Praia do Guincho

Praia do Guincho, located directly after Cascais when heading out from Lisbon, is one of the best spots in Portugal for surfing and wind surfing. Portugal frequently holds national and international competitions at this location. July and August are the best months for these sports, but the wind begins to blow in May and goes on until October.

The south side of the beach is usually chosen by surfers and the north side has much better conditions for wind surfers.

On this beach you'll find plenty of summertime entertainment, brought to you in the bars and restaurants sitting along the coast.

From here we strongly advise you to go on to Cape Roca, the most western point on mainland Europe and then on to charming Sintra, home of wonderful palaces and gardens.
