Geocache Description:

This enormous coastline is made up of a group of beaches, each with its own feel. Nothing separates them except for imaginary lines, with wooden walkways taking you down its 30 kilometers, as does a tourist train during the summer. The most crowded beach is by Caparica town, and is therefore not recommended. Move south and you'll find more seclusion and better beach bars. Two favorites are Praia da Morena and Praia da Sereia, with young crowds filling their bars to see and be seen. The further you go the less crowded it gets, with Fonte da Telha being the favorite among those who don't like to wear anything. That's also a popular beach for kite and windsurfing, while Beach 19 before that is the unofficial gay beach. Further south is Meco, popular with young crowds and nudists. Unlike Cascais and Estoril west of Lisbon, this coast south of the city is not an international resort with grand hotels. It's mostly frequented by locals in the summer, and accommodation is mostly 2-stars, with only a couple of 4-star hotels.

A praia do Marcelino e do Norte são praias contíguas separadas por pontões de pedra escura. Atrás no topo do molhe de pedra está o passeio largo em alcatrão claro, com alguns bares. No praia do Marcelino há um bar já antigo num pequeno edifício em tons de azul claro e branco, que dá o nome á praia. Estas praias já muito reduzidas, desaparecem com a maré cheia, chegando o mar às pedras do molhe que limita a praia atrás. Estas praias ficam no centro da Caparica, com todas as vantagens e inconvenientes que são inerentes. A praia do marcelino tem um parque mesmo atrás em terra batida, mas é vedado e pago. A praia do Norte tem um caminho passando ao lado do Marcelino que vai dar a um parque em terra batida sem ser cobrado. Em ambos há que ter atenção aos roubos. Nos dois cantos da praia do Marcelino pode-se apanhar boas ondas embora seja muito inconstante. A melhor altura é com a maré quase cheia. A praia do Norte funciona do mesmo modo, embora para apanhar boas ondas, estas não podem estar muito grandes e o vento não pode estar muito forte ou de Oeste. Na maré vazia as ondas fecham completamente, tornando-se impossivel surfar.
