The beaches of Sintra are a wonderful place to enjoy the sun and sea in western Portugal. The beaches are ideal, at Hells Mouth (Boca del Infierno), Cape Roca and its surroundings, stunning beach landscapes that look out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Sintras beaches offer characteristically golden sand and crystal clear waters of the Atlantic. There are urban beaches, semi-urban and isolated, the latter naturally being the most populated during summer by the hundreds of tourists who visit this popular summer destination.
In the Hells mouth, beaches are ideal for windsurfing, beaches where the wind and waves delight lovers of this sport. Another landmark is the Cabo de Roca, where the waves attract many surfers and bodyboarders.
One of the most outstanding beaches of Sintra is the Das Macas beach, a tranquil beach with a romantic spirit and an idyllic natural environment, its golden sand, its restaurants, its cliffs... all combine to make the beach a special place for visitors.
In Azenhas do Mar, you also can enjoy beautiful beaches, such as Ursa beach, where the large boulders are interspersed with golden sand, giving the area a special atmosphere. This beach is ideal for enjoying a sunset.
In general, the beaches of Sintra are rural isolated beaches, due mainly to the rough terrain along the cliffs, and for the fact that the area is a designated naturereserve. One of the best examples is the Adraga Beach, a unique beach, which mingles golden sand and large rocks giving a touch of mystery, romance and intimacy.
