Are you staying in Lisbon for a couple of days this summer and really want to avoid those crowded beaches?
We can help!!!!
On this summer we will start going to SERRA DA ARRABIDA.
We will pick you up in Lisbon and drive south trough Serra da Arrabida.
Located next to the sea, between Setúbal and the fishing town of Sesimbra, Arrábida Natural Park has incomparable natural beauty, where the blue of the sea alternates with the white tones of the chalk cliffs and the depths of the green vegetation that covers the mountain range.
We will stop for a swim in Portinho da Arrabida. This beach is deemed one of the prettiest in all of Portugal. Its fine white sands and the various tones of blue of these clear waters contrast with the deep greens of the hills to create a beautiful scenario that is perfect for contemplative relaxation.
This calm bay is good for diving to enjoy the diverse marine life although fishing itself is forbidden given that the seabed itself is included in the Natural Park’s protected area.
After we will cross the whole natural park and stop for pictures in the top of the mountain. Just then, head to Setubal to have lunch.
In the beginning of the 20th century, Setúbal was the most important center of Portugal’s fishing industry, particularly sardines. None of the many factories then created are operating today. However, the existing maritime ports, either traditional, commercial and the new marines, keep the city links to the ocean and water well alive and vibrant.
Setubal is famous for a marvelous seafood dish “Choco Frito” (fried cuttlefish). A perfect way to finish the day with nice food and a a bottle of wine!
