Photographer's Note

Finished more one beach day, come back to home. A romantico environment, a soft breeze, the sun says goodby. We are in the Guincho beach.

Guincho - 10 Km from center of Cascais city, lying at the foot of the Sintra hills and facing the Atlantic, should not be missed. This beach is close the westernmost point in continental Europe (Cape Roca). The sand dunes blend subtly with the pine trees, the sea - rich in fish - rushes here and there into majestic caverns such as the famous Boca do Inferno which is well worth a visit. The vegetation is varied and beautiful and mostly of the Mediterranean type. Guincho has always been ideal for surfing owing to the large breakers, but it is now becoming increasingly known for wind surfing - a sport much developed over the last few years.
