Praia do Tonel Beach Tourist Guide

Praia do Tonel is to the west of central Sagres, just a 700 meter walk from the Jadin de Sagres. At the beach there is a large car park and the main access road is the road to Sagres Fort. On the beach front there is a café and restaurant but the main town is not far away.

Praia do Tonel has lifeguard supervision during the summer months but there are dangerously strong tides and currents especially around the rocks. This is not a beach for young children or weak swimmers and always only swim or surf when the flags indicate that it is safe to do so. The Atlantic Ocean currents keep the waters of Praia do Tonel consistent (13-15°C) all year round so for extended surfing seasons consider a thin wet suit. The strong westerly wind ensures that there is excitable swell with larger breakers all year round.
