Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Leiria District / Nazare / Praia da Nazare
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.

We stopped here very briefly while driving north to Porto. We didn't see the colossal surf that Nazare is known for (darn!).

Great place to visit we had such fun. The water was very cold but refreshing. Sooooo beautiful it was just breathe taking
Stunning sandy beach with amazing waves. Can walk for miles. Plenty of lovely shops and restaurants behind it. Could certainly camp here for the day.
