Carcavelos, The family's favorite destination
Just 20 minutes from Lisbon by train (Estoril line), Carcavelos beach is the largest beach near the Portuguese capital, but also probably the one with the most people. Surfers enjoy the waves; many voleyball competitions and many families; the restaurants and terraces border the sea.
Praia do Guincho , for thrill seekers

Adraga, One of the most beautiful beaches in Europe
Voted in 2003 among the 20 most beautiful European beaches by the Sunday Times, Adraga beach enjoys an exceptional natural environment. Located in the heart of the Sintra Natural Park, the beach is surrounded by cliffs carved by the ocean, and has far fewer people than the beaches located a little further south.
Troy, jet set and a Caribbean touch
With its white sand and crystal clear waters, warmer than elsewhere on the coast, The Beach of Troy has become the trendy place in the south of Lisbon. The clientele enjoys the restaurants and luxury and high-end hotels that border the sea... all to remind you a little of the Caribbean!
Portinho de Arrabida, Excellent diving point
The green of the vegetation that covers the mountains, the blue crystal clear waters of the bay, the white sand of the many isolated coves... a true postcard of the landscapes of Portinho da Arrábida. And a place to dive renowned in a protected marine reserve.
Figueirinha, white sand to the horizon
A relaxing place par excellence, Figueirinha beach is known for its white sandbanks and transparent waters. A special scenario. Put on your bathing suit! Ready? Immerse!
