Guincho, the wild west coastline

Other than the great swimming beaches along the Cascais bay, Cascais has a long stretch along the west coast called Guincho. Here the sea is wilder and the beaches are longer. This area is also a natural park and home to many of the natural species and plants that you will find along the Portuguese coast.
Guincho coastline

For site seeing Guincho offers some nice coastline natural monuments of which the Boca do Inferno (mouth of hell) is just 1.5 KM from Cascais centre The Boca do Inferno is a small cave caused by the pounding of the waves into the cliff formation. In winter when the tides are most rough it is at its most impressive when the high waves crash into the rocks making a loud sound of thunder. There is a stairway down the cliff to view the cave from different angles.
