Location

We are 10 minutes walking distance to one of the most stunning coastline in Sintra´s National Park.

With an extensive beach along the cliffs praia da Aguda is wild and beautiful the access is for the adventurous ones but beauty and tranquility awaits at the end of the stairs. Along the coast, 2 km each way, you will find Magoito beach that has consistent surf and Azenhas do Mar, a beautiful and awe to inspiring village perched on the cliffs.

We are just 10 minutes drive to one of the most consistent breaks in the Lisbon zone. Praia Grande is a very versatile beachbreak with long, but often slow waves at low tide and faster, shorter shorebreaks when the tide starts pushing up.

This location is ideal for long walks of exploration and close contact with Nature´s beauty.

Sintra's two main beaches are Praia das Macas and Praia Grande. Both are perfect beginner/intermediate beaches and are some of the most consistent surf beaches in the whole Lisbon-Sintra area. North and South of these beaches are many small coves and beautiful hidden beaches that provide any exploring surfer with plenty to get excited about!

Close by is Praia Guincho, a spectacular long beach with different peaks, perfect for learning and can get big and windy in the afternoon, so morning is always the best bet here.

Ericeira is only 30 minutes drive and is definitely worth a day trip at least, it has dozens of surf beaches to offer including the famous point break Ribeira D'Ilhas and also the relaibale beach break Foz do Lizandro.

Further South is Cascais and Lisbon with an endless supply of different surf beaches for all standards.
