Playa de Carcavelos

La playa de Carcavelos se extiende desde la entrada de Carcavelos hasta el Fuerte de S. Julião da Barra, integrando dos arenales de pequeñas dimensiones: la playa del «Moinho», al lado del «Forte», y otra, enfrente al Bar de los «Gémeos».A pesar de ser el más extenso arenal de toda la Costa de Estoril, es común que la playa se llene los días de verano, incluso durante la semana.
Para servir todos esos veraneantes, además de los bares y restaurantes que permanecen abiertos toda la noche, hay también una escuela de deportes naúticos, como el surf, windsurf y bodyboard. La playa tiene aún recintos de fútbol de playa y beach voley. Los campeonatos de fútbol playa se han realizado allí, bien como otros acontecimientos deportivos, como beach rugby y beach voley.
En el aparcamiento hay todavía un conjunto de rampas de skate y campos de baloncesto.
