Praia do Guincho, located directly after Cascais when heading out from Lisbon, is one of the best spots in Portugal for surfing and wind surfing. Portugal frequently holds national and international competitions at this location. July and August are the best months for these sports, but the wind begins to blow in May and goes on until October.
The south side of the beach is usually chosen by surfers and the north side has much better conditions for wind surfers.
On this beach you'll find plenty of summertime entertainment, brought to you in the bars and restaurants sitting along the coast.
From here we strongly advise you to go on to Cape Roca, the most western point on mainland Europe and then on to charming Sintra, home of wonderful palaces and gardens.

Guincho - 5 km from Cascais , lying at the foot of the Sintra hills and facing the Atlantic, should not be missed. The sand dunes blend subtly with the pine trees, the sea - rich in fish - rushes here and there into majestic caverns such as the famous Boca do Inferno which is well worth a visit. The vegetation is varied and beautiful and mostly of the Mediterranean type. Guincho has always been ideal for surfing owing to the large breakers, but it is now becoming increasingly known for wind surfing - a sport much developed over the last few years.
