Nice sandy beach, easily accessible from train, bus station. Lots of shops to get your drinks, restaurants and ice cream stalls are available. Good for joggers, children too. Many dog owners are also around with their dogs. If you are in Estoril, don't miss it....

Visited in september, waves weren't dangerous(although they get bigger after noon), the water was rather cold, but that's not a huge issue; the fact that there is a calisthenics equipment 50 meters away from the beach was a HUGE bonus for me. Also, you can...More

The beach has sun loungers and shades for hire (around 15 euros for two as I recall). There are a couple of nice restaurants close by and always life guards around.
