Praia das Maçãs, close to Colares is an important centre for relaxation and leisure, where you can sunbathe and swim in the sea while contemplating the beautiful surrounding landscape of mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
Praia Grande is one of the most popular beaches in the Lisbon region, being greatly appreciated by both swimmers and surfers. It is the venue for all kinds of national and international competitions involving the use of a board, such as surfing, bodyboarding and skimming.
If your prefer a calmer "sea", then you’ll find a saltwater swimming-pool waiting for you at the top of the cliff.
From Sintra, you can take a tram ride to Praia das Maçãs, offering you the chance to remember the old days and enjoy the countryside even more.
No visit to the Sintra coast would be complete without a trip to Cabo da Roca, Europe’s westernmost point, "where the land ends and the sea begins".
