Beautiful beach yielding stunning sunsets. Incredible photos from the pier looking back at the village after dark. Fish drying tacks, ball sports, beautiful cobble footpath, nice people, beach patrol....a highlight in a country of highlights!

The sea front front is spectacular from 500 meters away but any closer and one risks being sucked in by rogue waves, spun around in the surf, and mercilessly dragged to the open sea. The sea shore drops down about 15 feet ( 5 meters) at the edge of the sand due to bthe savagery of the waves. The local police have to constantly patrol the beach as so many visitors demonstrate a penchant for suicide or immeasurable stupidity and taunt death by advancing closer between waves obviously oblivious to the steep drop into the ocean. May God have mercy on their soul and vgrant them a quick death.

First we saw the beach and the town from the cliff (recommend) and then we drove down. Parked at the free parking lot within 5 minutes walk to the beach. The beach itself is quite big, wide, with soft, almost white sand.

Despite the rain we had a gorgeous view of the town and beach, suggest you walk along the road if not driving, and get up to the lighthouse to feel the power of Nazare winds. What a sight!

Walking the beach is well worth doing. Across from the beach are several hotels, restaurants and shops. A visit to the summit of Sitio via the funicular is worth seeing.
