Information & board rental

Praia Grande, the name says it all, is a big beach west of Lisbon. It’s situated right in the Sintra-Cascais natural park so it’s surrounded by nature. There is a lot of parking space and some restaurants right at the beach, try Bar do Fundo. If the waves are small, it’s a good beach for beginners. When it’s big, Praia Grande is more for intermediate to experienced surfers.
