Praia Grande

Just as its name suggests, this is a grand and large beach and is a particular favourite among surfers and bodyboarders and has become a regular host of championship events in these sports.

At the extreme north of Praia Grande is one of the largest saltwater swimming pools in Europe at over 100 metres in length and owned by the Hotel das Arribas.

And, as an additional attraction, pay a visit to the dinosaur fossils to be found on the Beach's south cliff with one bed containing an easily identifiable sequence of eleven dinosaur footsteps.
