The 1999 Euro Beach Soccer Cup was the second Euro Beach Soccer Cup, one of Europe's two major beach soccer championships at the time, held in September 1999, in Alicante, Spain. Hosts Spain won the championship, with Portugal finishing second. France beat Italy in the third place play off to finish third and fourth respectively.

Four teams participated in the tournament, which was played as part of the 1999 World Series. The World Series was played in 2 groups of 4 teams - a World Group (for non-European teams) and a European Group, which doubled as the Euro Beach Soccer Cup for 1999. Both groups were played in a knockout format, with semi-finals followed by a third place match and a final.[1]
