About Guincho Beach, Sintra

The foothills of Sintra end in this gorgeous destination of Guincho Beach that opens up to the massive Atlantic Ocean. The beach is sort of a celebrity it was featured in James Bond’s ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’.

This beach is a very popular spot for wind surfing and board surfing. Even if water sports are not your thing, take up the cycling route to this adorable location early in the morning and take in the silence of the shore. Rent a chair at the beach and laze around to your heart’s content. The beach has a variety of good restaurants and bars as well which makes it an ideal party spot at night.

If on the other hand you do get inspired by the surfers and their swagger, you can always learn at the surf school on the beach. Camping areas and villas are situated close to the beach.
