About the Beach

What is Praia das Maçãs Beach?

Lifeguarded Beach from to
3196800
days for the start of bathing season

It's an Oceanic Beach in the northern hemisphere bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, located on the coast of Portugal - Iberian Peninsula - in the municipality of Sintra.

Praia das Maçãs Beach aquired its name due to the planted orchards on the margins of the Rio das Maçãs1, or Rio de Colares2 that empties in here. Formerly, apples would fall from trees in the river waters and were carried until its mouth at the beach.
The sand has a medium extension and is very wide.
The main infrastructures have a football field, three tennis courts and two salt water swimming pools.
Access is achieved by Estrada Nacional 375 and going until Rua da Cruz3.
