Guincho Beach sits on an unspoiled dunes’ area in the Sintra-Cascais natural park and 6km from Cascais and is surrounded by peaceful green hills and pine forests, offering an invigorating contact with nature.
Guincho Beach - The powerful waves and strong winds make it one of the best European beaches for surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sports alike, and it has hosted national and international competitions.
Several surf schools and shops provide accommodation and services including rentals, repairs, and classes. Swimmers should be aware of the strong waves and currents. Fortunately, Estalagem Muchaxo Hotel, at the southern end of the beach, offers a seawater pool built in the cliffs.
Cascais - Elegant pedestrian streets, lined with fashionable shops, gorgeous seafood restaurants, trendy bars, amazing hotels, and top-class golf resorts make it a tourist destination in its own right. And let’s not forget that there are more than twenty Blue Flag beaches nearby, with some truly world class spots for surfing and watersports.
