Adraga beach is located close to Cape Roca, just outside Sintra, at the village of Almoçageme. It is one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast, surrounded by tall picturesque cliffs. All the drawings on them are from the sea waves, as they are mostly raging, and swimming here can be dangerous. The coastal strip stretches for about 400 m.
Praia da Adraga beach is located near Cape Roca, near Sintra near the village of Almoçageme. Near the beach, you can also visit a beautiful geological landscape consisting of Fojo da Adraga and Pedra de Alvidrar. To get there, you must go from the parking lot uphill in a southerly direction and from there you can descend to the small beach of Praia do Cavalo. Be careful because the descent is very dangerous and requires special training.
If the weather does not get you, you can spend a good time cozying up to a window overlooking the ocean and admire the wild elements.
