Beautiful, quiet beach. Usually windy but in July it was welcoming. Make sure to bring umbrella to help block the wind. If staying in Cascais recommend renting bikes in Casa de guia and riding the trail it's beautiful costal view and only takes 20 - 25 minutes . Bikes are free bring I.D.

Just the perfect set for that warm summer day, where you just want to relax by the seaside, catch some sun, grab your quality time, go for a occasional swim... 500 meters from Guincho beach, water temperature still a bit cold (not as), but less windy, as its more secluded. Just perfect.

This beach is rather small for a big walk, but interesting views and a bit more protected from winds.

We drove out to this beach from Lisbon for a day trip & were amazed at how wild & wonderful it was. There's a little stand next to a parking lot, if you can find it, where you can both pay for parking & pay (tiny amount of money) for use of a shower/changing room/bathroom. The attendant was very kind... More

Here you are quite close to the westernmost point of continental Europe - Cabo da Roca (Roca Cape) a bit north and also worth a visit ! Almost no... More

This is a cold water beach, with big waves and white sand. If you like to surf you must try it in Guincho.

Very beautiful beach, but very windy the day that I was there in July. I would imagine there are days that it is not so windy, but the water is very cold! I am used to the warm waters in the US side of the Atlantic. But regardless, it was a great day for sunning and relaxing. This is a... More

This is a really nice beach right beside Guincho Beach. It is small but less Windy. Go early on the weekends. Recently opened a nice Bar where you can watch the amazing sunset from the Dunes.
