Carcavelos Beach Portugal

Carcavelos is where all of Lisbon comes to surf. It’s just 12 km by car, or a mere 20 minutes by train from the Cais do Sodre station in central Lisbon, and it can certainly get crowded with school kids and tourists trying their luck on a foam board. There’s no shortage of rental shops and schools. Fortunately, the beach is wide enough for everyone, most of the time – and you may have it *almost* all to yourself if you show up before 8am.

Carcavelos Beach Portugal Weather Forecast

Local spot / bar: Casa da Praia Carcavelos is a really cool looking pink beach house right on the beach. They serve amazing burgers and seafood, and of course, Sagres beer.
How cool is it: It is in the city centre. You don’t get much cooler than going surfing in the morning, then checking out one of Europe’s coolest cities in the afternoon/evening.
Locals: Locals are very friendly, but there are a lot of them. Shops and schools will provide repairs if needed.


The best months for kite surfing at Carcavelos are June to September, with wind speeds, when it’s blowing, between 16 and 25 knots, and the season stretches from March to October. It’s a sandy break, and best when the wind is SE, while the dominant wind is NE. The currents do get pretty strong.


This beach break offers rights and lefts for rides up to 150 meters on a good day. The best swells come from the south, and the waves are ridable from 1 to a little over 2 meters. It’s best at mid-tide. The lineup, and the beach, do get incredibly crowded, especially on the weekend, since Carcavelos is great for expert and beginner surfers alike. If you do know what you’re doing and need space, the nearby Parede offers a much more challenging rocky bottom break that’s perfect when the swell’s in.

There’s also Camping Guincho and Lisboa Camping.

Other Activities

There’s not much else to do in Carcavelos other than be on the beach or watch people, with a coffee or beer in hand, at one of several beach-side cafes. As you are on the coast, there is a ton of other beaches and sea cliffs going north, some with a bit of rock climbing. Back toward Lisbon, you’re minutes away from the majestic Belem Tower and the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (which also houses the Maritime Museum, with a magnificent collection of astrolabes and other instruments and model ships galore). Right next to these is the Berardo Collection, which seems to have at least one piece from each important contemporary artist in the world. And every first and third Sunday, the adjacent gardens of Belem play host to a market  that is one of the best places to get antiques, with prices that beat the better-know Feira da Ladra. If you want to use your money otherwise, head to the Casino Estoril – allegedly the birth place of James Bond.
