Situated just around the corner from Cascais's famous Guincho beach is the lovely intimate little cove of Praia do Abano. This little gem is easily overlooked. After the sand strewn vista over Guincho the Sintra coast road winds through pine woods, and it is off a dirt track through these woods that you will find Praia do Abano. Abano has some similarities with its bigger neighbour; it is exposed to the strong winds and powerful waves that often pummel this exposed coast. However, on a calm summer afternoon you could be a million miles from anywhere - except you're still only less than an hour from Lisbon. Many of the beaches visitors come here for the restaurant with its terrace overlooking the beach - a truly lovely and laid-back place to wile away a summer's day.
