Suggestion: The 10 Most Beautiful Beaches on the Lisbon Coast

A selection of the 10 most beautiful beaches on the Lisbon coast.

Portinho da Arrábida  
South of the city, on a bay by the hills of the Arrábida Natural Park, this beach of crystal-clear waters is Lisbon’s most beautiful paradise.

Praia da Ursa
Europe’s westernmost beach is the magnificent reward for those who venture down a steep cliff to find it by the mystical cape of Roca.

Praia da Adraga
 It has been ranked one of Europe’s most beautiful beaches, and that’s due to the many rocks that punctuate the white sand. It’s found by magical Sintra. 

Praia do Guincho, Cascais
The biggest beach on the “Lisbon Riviera,” this is a world-class windsurfing destination. It has a wild beauty that still looks the same as when it was featured in the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.”

Praia do Meco
It was known as the beach of hippies and nudists in the 70s and continues to draw those who enjoy the freedom of a large natural setting. Cliffs and a pine forest provide privacy in the sun.

Praia do Carvalhal
 Stork nests often welcome you to this large sandy beach close to the Alentejo coast. It usually has calm waters and the scent of pine trees. 

The beaches of this peninsula were once an important Roman settlement but are now part of a sophisticated resort developed in the last decade. It is still a natural habitat of dolphins that now coexist with visitors looking to escape to a pristine environment just about one hour from Lisbon.

Praia da Fonte da Telha
Kite surfers and nudists of all ages usually choose this sandy beach overlooked by a forest as their favorite on the coast of Caparica. A small train connects it to other beaches along the coast.

Praia da Conceição, Cascais
The biggest beach in the center of Cascais (about 25 minutes from downtown Lisbon) is overlooked by mansions and the waters are always calm and crystal clear.

Praia do Tamariz, Estoril
One of Lisbon’s most famous beaches, it is found in the center of Estoril by Europe’s largest casino and an iconic castle.
