Praia da Adraga Beach

The Praia de Adraga is regarded as one of the best beaches of Portugal mainly due to the stunning scenery of cliffs, jagged rock out crops and golden sand. This opinion was confirmed by a poll conducted by a British national newspaper that rated Praia de Adraga as one of Europe’s top 20 beaches. This view might be slightly overrated if you visit during the summer weekends when the beach is busy and the car park is rammed but no one can dispute that Praia de Adraga is a beautiful beach.

Tourist Information Praia da Adraga

Praia da Adraga is 18km north of Cascais and 13km west from Sintra. Due to the semi-remoteness of the beach there is virtually no public transport, so visitors will need the use of a rental car to reach Adraga beach. From Cascais the most pleasant route is along the N247 which follows the coastline and passes the beach of Guincho. At the town of Almoçageme turn left and follow this road for a further 2km, the beach is well signed.

The Guincho Beach

At the beach there is cafe, restaurant and public toilets. The major issue with the beach is the very limited parking which at the height of the season can be a pain to park. This beach is best visited during the week. If Praia da Adraga is too busy for you liking head south along the N247 to Praia do Guincho.
