What you'll do
We will start the experience at Magoito beach. From there we go to Maçãs beach and return to the starting point. On the way we'll pass by the wonderful beaches of Sintra (Aguda beach, Azenhas do Mar beach, Maçãs beach), where we'll stop on viewpoints to take some photos. The experience consists of approximately 15km (7,5 for each side). At half way, there is a cozy esplanade, facing the sea (at Maçãs beach), with tables and chairs where we can stop and have some food or drinks (not included in price). The route is always parallel to the coastline and mostly made by dirt roads (with some climbs but relatively easy to ride), also have some sections of roads with little movement. We can stop whenever you need to rest, have a snack (energy bars), enjoy the landscapes and take pictures. From May to October, on the days that the weather and sea conditions allow, it is possible a brief and refreshing swim on the beach (Magoito beach) at the end of the bicycle tour. You can watch the experience video in YouTube: "Cycling through beaches of Sintra".

I was born in Sintra and have always lived here! I love all the natural beauty of this place, especially the peaceful coastal zone where I live. I like cooking, fishing, hiking, biking, farming and everything that makes me have contact with nature. I'm passionate about travelling and meeting people from around the world. I'm glad to be able to share the best of my region in a bike tour and to have very pleasant moments together.
