Calming Ocean Sounds Recorded in Portugal

Are you tired of always listening to the same low-quality, looped ocean sounds on YouTube or Spotify without knowing where they came from?
We are dedicated to recording high-quality, authentic ocean sounds that you can use for sleep, relaxation, study, and more.


Recording Calming Ocean Sounds In Portugal

Capturing ocean sounds has always been a favorite type of recording, and whenever I have the chance to be close to the coast, I take it. While living in Lisbon, Portugal, I got the new Zoom F6 field recorder and teamed it with my Wildtronics SAAM to create an incredibly powerful and high-quality stereo array setup.


Nazaré, Sintra & Cascais

One day, a friend drove me from Lisbon to Nazarè to watch some of the world’s tallest waves. If you thought Australia or Hawaii had the biggest waves, you need to come to Portugal. I have never seen anything like it before in my life. Be sure to include Nazarè on your bucket list if you ever visit Portugal.
After viewing some intense waves, we went to the coast of Sintra. I was fortunate to have a local showing me around, and we only recorded in secluded areas without any unwanted sounds. We stopped in a small village, where I captured the ocean sounds from a 400-meter distance just to get a different sound field. I did this again from 200 meters but near a secluded beach.

On another day, I took the train to Cascais. This small harbor town is a gem but is also a tourist hotspot and gateway from Lisbon. I recorded ocean sounds in several beach areas and outside of Cascais and watched the sunset. Our ocean sounds are authentic and unprocessed, perfect for relaxation, meditation, study, and post-production, with the personal touch of Portugal.

They can help you sleep, focus, and unwind. All of our ocean sounds are royalty-free and so you can enjoy the highest quality audio. Download them now and experience the calming power of the ocean.
