Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Sintra Municipality / Sintra / Praia da ursa
View a beach of spectacular natural beauty at Praia da ursa, where thousands of years of the Atlantic's wind and waves have carved the rocks and cliffs into interesting shapes, including a huge stone in the form of a bear. Located in the Natural Park of Sintra, this piece of shoreline--Europe's westernmost beach--can be difficult to access due to the steep, rocky hill leading down to it. Once at the bottom, explore the sandy shore and blue, albeit cold, waters. Nudists favor this attraction for its hard-to-reach location. Consider delaying your visit if the weather is rainy, because the climb becomes too slippery to travel here safely.

Praia da ursa reviews
One of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, easy to get there and not expensive at all. Portugal offers the best options to spend a week off of the routine. more »
The best b-day. The extremely outstanding view. But if wants to reach this beach you need to climb up/down.... In any case it is worth it. Rocks, sand, atlantic ocean.... Must see... more »
