Nazareth the beach of giant waves, a place where all surf lovers have to go one day, we went and even on a day that the waves were nothing great, the sea already frightened by its strength.

We went through Nazareth to know that beach that both seen on TV in the championships of giant waves, and for us Brazilians it is even more famous for, the Brazilians dominate these waves.

We passed there on a trip we were making from Porto to Lisbon by car, and one of the stops was to know Nazareth, We did not stay long in the city, or on the beach, but he has to get an idea of ​​how the sea there is strong and magnificent.

The best place to see the giant waves and beaches is the beacon of Nazareth, It is high on the mountain, dividing the two beaches, left is Beach Nazareth and right is North Beach, the giant waves are more in North Beach.

As our idea was just to go through the place, We stopped the car near the lighthouse Nazareth, in front of Shrine of Our Lady of Nazareth, which has a free parking, and down to the lighthouse walk, give up to go to drive there, but there are days when it is too full, so we decided to stop in the first wave we saw free and is very quiet and close to walk there.

It must be very nice to see a championship giant waves, maybe some will have that opportunity.

A good tip is to eat a Cod cake the bar and restaurant that is in front of the Sanctuary, called Cafe – Pastry shop ” The fat”, one of the best cookies we eat in Portugal that we experienced several.

As that day visited several cities, we were there for a 2 hours, and already we head to Lisbon, where we would be staying.
