    Guincho is famous for its mighty waves coming from the Atlantic Ocean. This makes it to a perfect surfer location. Often the side of the roads are packed with the surfer's cars.

    Sea condition is indicated by flags.

    Casa de Guincho

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Out about 2 kilometers from town, west along the sea road you will find a place called Gincho and the Casa de Gincho.

    Casa de Gincho is a museum, bookstore and “house and Home” type place with companies showing how to fix up your place.

    The building is old and has a charm to it. You can see in its settings that it once was a beautiful home and gardens. Today the gardens have been changed into little eating and walking places with very nice views.

    Take some time to walk around the house and then walk around the gardens. When you are done have a bica (coffee) and sit and watch the sea.

    There are many little hidden places to enjoy the sea.
    Park you car and walk along the cliffs and see what you can find.

    The main beach area is part of a big sand dune that is wind driven up into the forest along the coast. Explore the dunes can be fun.

    Favorite thing: Guincho is a lovley place to watch the waves come in.

    Fondest memory: You need to come here when there is a storm coming and watch the waves. Some of the breakers are very big.

    Favorite thing: You can park just about anywhere along the beach but it is better to take the bus or ride your bike.

    At night in the summer this is the place that the lovers park to watch the sea.
