Location

Charneca do Guincho is a traditional Portuguese village, a secret hideaway of many artists and local sportsmen, with a restaurant to bar, small markets and even a Horse Riding School.

Just 15 minutes walk from Guincho surf beach, the House enjoys a privileged location and view. The magic of this little piece of land, that is only a few kilometers away from Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe, gives another dimension to the experience of staying in this place, leaving in your memory impressions of charm.

The historic center of Cascais is only a 10 minute drive away, where you will find restaurants with a rich variety in traditional and international cuisine, complemented by a vibrant nightlife.

Located 1 km from the highway, and only 35 minutes from the Lisbon International Airport, with airport transfer service available.

"Become a getaway to paradise, is a time to return to your breathing, your body, your essence."

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Guincho Wayra House is a great place. Very clean, quiet relaxing atmosphere, great view over the mountains and very nice staff. I felt very welcome. The area near Sintra and Guincho beach is beautifull. Buses are driving regularly but I was happy to have rented a car to go everywhere.


How were the surf lessons with Add Action Portugal?

Cascais is the perfect place to learn how to surf. The town is surrounded by many different types of beaches. The best beginners/intermediate surf beach is Guincho (pronounced Ginchu) 5 km's north west of Cascias town. It's a beautiful kilometre long stretch of beach.

Further north are two excellent beginners beaches Praia das Macas & Praia Grande. They are well worth the trip as they will take you past Cabo da Roca, mainland Europes most Western Point with a pretty impressive cliff top view.

A few hundred metres East of Cascais is Monte Estoril beach which has a small righthand wave that breaks regularly. There is a car park at its base accessed from a slip road above.

Follow the road east of Cascais along the Tagus river (Tejo in Portuguese) towards Lisbon and you will come across beach after beach offering a vast amount of surf: Bica is a great longboarders break on Sao Pedro beach. The beach has a few surf bars and restaurants and is a great place to spend the day.

Closer to Lisbon is Carcavelos beach - as the Stormriders surf guide call it: "the original and still one of the best Portuguese surf spots". Its a very consistent beach break and home to some of Portugals best surfers.

Its also worth taking the trip across the river Tagus to Costa Caparica - driving over the spectacular Ponte 25 de Abril bridge leaving Lisbon behind you. Costa Caprica is a 30 km strip of coast with some of the most consistent surf in Portugal.
