Big waves and wide sandy swaths make Praia da Nazare one of the most popular spots along the country's Atlantic coastline. Due to its geography and strong ocean currents, this beach often sees monster breakers in excess of 20 m (78 ft), a huge draw for some of the world's top surfers. In addition to record-breaking waves, the beach offers easy access to the nearby town of Nazare, a busy tourist resort packed with trendy shops and award-winning seafood restaurants. The current is extremely strong here, even on calm days, so watch out for the really big swells, and keep an eye on the weakest swimmers in your party.

  • I used to go here as a kid int eh 90's and it was a great place. Now it is over commercialized. All you see in the summer is tourists walking down to the lighthouse hoping to see the big waves...

  • Great place to visit we had such fun. The water was very cold but refreshing. Sooooo beautiful it was just breathe taking
  • Is a stunning beach with the cliff overhanging. Very windy day, and too rough in the waves at the beach to swim, so the lifeguards had the red flag up. We still enjoyed some time relaxing in the sun between gusts of sand swept up in the wind. Honestly was lovely despite it
