Praia da Bafureira is a little beach tucked away just around the headland from Praia de São Pedro do Estoril next door.
If it wasn’t for the quirky looking restaurant and nightclub built into the cliff face not many people would know Bafureira existed.
Bafureira is one of the smallest beaches on the Lisbon-Cascais coast and whilst there is a reasonable area of sand the shoreline is dominated by rocks making paddling and bathing rather uninviting.
To the back of the beach is a steep cliff face which is prone to the occasional rocks falling.
Therefore it is not advised to throw your towel down too close.
This is not always an option as the sand all but disappears when the tide comes in.
