Often counted among Portugal’s finest stretches of sand, Adraga Beach is known for its wild beauty. Lie on the beach’s golden sands, which are surrounded by cliffs, or venture out into the blue-green water to tackle the Atlantic waves on a surfboard.
Located just a few miles away from Cape Roca (Cabo da Roca), the westernmost point in mainland Europe, Adraga Beach is blessed with large Atlantic waves. Because of this, it is a popular spot among surfers. Bring along your board and join the wave riders out in the water.
The beach is also popular among sunbathers and local families, who find shaded spots in the shadows of the surrounding cliffs. Station yourself on the sand and admire the jagged rock formations offshore and the cliffs around the beach’s inland edge. You can find several grottoes and tunnels here. Stay until sunset to witness the sun casting golden streaks on the ocean.
Appreciate the peaceful atmosphere on the unspoiled beach. Though it is well-known by locals, Adraga rarely attracts a huge crowd, as it is not easily accessible to those who don’t have a car.
Wild as it may appear, Adraga has some amenities. Find toilets and a snack bar on the beach. A nearby restaurant built into the cliffs serves a menu of fresh seafood-focused dishes. A lifeguard is on duty at the beach during the summer months. Currents can be strong here, so weaker swimmers should be careful. During winter months, the waters may be too cold for swimming.
Find Adraga Beach on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, about 12 miles (19 kilometers) north of Cascais and 8 miles (13 kilometers) west of Sintra. The beach is not served by public transportation so consider renting a car or taking a taxi to reach here. If you drive, arrive early during peak summer months to ensure you get a spot in the limited parking area available at the beach.
