This was our local beach during our holiday. It has miles and miles of soft white sand, very gentle slope into the sea meaning that it is great for kids and perfect waves for practicing surfing. The beach was practically empty for the whole of the Easter week - or felt that way. The surf size was obviously weather dependent,... More

Several km of an excellent beach just across the river Tejo, near Lisbon. Plenty of space to stay on the sand and sand dune, or swim on the ocean.

We hiked for an hour through the pine forest above the beach on a warm afternoon in February. We had regular and good views of different aspects of beach and sea life with its walkers, runners, fishermen and surfers before heading down to walk to one of the bars. We didn't spot any dolphins however but they are rumoured to... More

I love this beach and every time I spend the summer in Portugal, I make sure I visit here. It's a stunning praia that stretches for many miles to the north and south with little or no development apart from the village of Fonte da Telha. If the Nortrada (north wind) isn't blowing strongly, you can bathe in clear, warm... More

It's a really good beach with lots of bars and restaurants to eat good snacks. The major problems are the accesses. They need to improved! Visited in April 2015

Very good beach but a bit over crowded compared to other beaches along the coast. Parking is a bit of a nightmare but you soon forget once you’re in the water and enjoying the sandy beach.

You will find disorganized houses, most of them build without license but the beach is excellentand there are nice bars. Following the sandy road to the left (direction South) you will find a pristine beach with few people, even in the summer.

The beach here is excellent, Kms of great sand and mild sea. Plenty of room for everybody outside the main entry area to the beach. Great views to Cabo Espichel on the left and to Caparica, Lisbon and Oeiras on the right. The water is not so hot as Algarve beaches but still very reasonable and is 30 minutes away... More
