Nazaré (1 of 5)




Nazaré is not located on this coast but it's just about 100 Kms north of Lisbon. This traditional fishing town became world famous when Garrett McNamara surfed the wave shown below.

What a glorious beach. It doesn't look like it could produce huge waves like that ... but I'm no surfer.

Love the place and the view, glad there are more pictures coming. I am also wondering if I can consider those seats as benches...

Absolutely spectacular!

Randy said...

That is some view. I'll bet it's quite up there too.

The first picture makes me think of Santorini. Obviously, a very calm day when you shot these. Is huge surf common there? Never heard of surf so high even on The Pipeline on northern Oahu,

Stunner of a first shot JM, what a view! But that wave...oh la! Sometimes I think surfers must be a little crazy oui :)

Stunning views. That's an unbelievable wave.

What a beautiful place! I can't imagine surfing a 100 foot wave! (Nor, to be honest, even a 5 foot wave.)

What an amazingly wide, beautiful beach! But those winter waves are downright scary—though gorgeous in their own way.
