Praia Grande is one of the most consistent and renowned breaks in the Lisbon area. This is a very versatile beach break with multiple peaks that work with different tides. Since the beach is very exposed, it picks up lots of swell, but it’s also very sensitive to wind.
It’s a powerful beach break and only accessible for less experienced surfers when the waves are small. When it’s on, you can have great tubes here. But be prepared to share the line-up with some of Portugal’s finest locals!
If Praia Grande is too crowded, you can check the smaller bay just north of Praia Grande, called Praia Pequena.
