It was a lovely sunny day in the beach. Lots of rocks surrounding. Portugal has the best beaches in Europe

Can't beat this beach only 40-50 minutes from Lisbon by train/Uber (less time if you drive). It's just far enough to avoid huge crowds in a heat wave (we went on a 95F+ day), and it is a dramatic, beautiful beach with great waves and small waves alike, pristine sand. Only downside is there are no public restrooms (contrary to what some beach review sites say). Highly recommend!
4 - Great beach especially for surfing

We made a quick stop here after visiting Sintra and the beach seemed really nice. It is popular mostly for surfing as it can get quite windy here. Not sure if it would be as enjoyable for swimming given the wind, but the views were quite nice and relaxing.
