Arrabida Natural Park

Reviewed By Marcos C

At the beginning of the Portinho da Arrábida, considered one of the best Beaches in Europe. Not as fancy or expensive as the one next to it, but definitely more real, a restaurant with the balcony over the sea where you can see the transparent and translucent blue waters and the fishes waiting for a bit of bread to eat. The staff is very friendly with fishing know how and the fish is fresh and rich. Try the desert based on a Portuguese recipe of "Arroz doce" but with a fresh touch. A perfect example of Portuguese Seafood restaurant on the beach.

Troia Beach

Reviewed By Barbara S - San Diego, California

The Troia Beach is especially suited for families with small children because it is protected from the usually high waves of the other Beaches in the area. There is a café/restaurant with outside showers. Parking right next to the beach can be a problem but there is ample parking in park houses nearby. From the beach there is also a walk way to Troia Marina with shops and restaurants.

Mercado do Livramento

Reviewed By S O - Canton of Zurich, Switzerland

This is a beautiful place.
Worth to visit just because of the architecture and the nice tiles mosaic.
The best are the stands and the people interacting in selling / buying products in a very lively atmosphere.
Take a seat in one of the bars and observe while enjoying a drink!
Grouped in sectors perfumes and colors will vary.
Fruits & vegetables in numerous colors and sizes.
Fish and sea food so attractive that is difficult to decide what to buy for lunch.
Butchers are set at the sides and will increase your difficulty to decide your next menu!
Bakers with various type of breads and florist complete the core of the stands present on site.
Only open in the morning, secure you are not hungry when you enter and that you have organized a lunch / dinner place for after the visit.
Inspiring!

Praia de Galapinhos

Reviewed By Dorival C

In the internet, the photos always look Paradise, but in the reality, it is a small beach, and almost impossible to walk, with so much people there. It is not bad, but I think it does not worth the effort to go there.

Figueirinha Beach

Reviewed By rrussell99 - Northern Ireland

Came across this beach by accident whilst exploring. It has a blue flag which means it has every facility from life guards to disabled access. There is a lively coffee shop which serves the best custard donuts and a restaurant attached with a good menu. The beach is huge with kayaks for hire. Great parking close by.

Casa da Baia – Centro de Promocao Turistica

The "House of the Bay - Center for Tourism Promotion ", is an authentic business card of the region of Setubal. The space, which functions in a building from the XVIII century, includes a tourist service area and a wine area, with a wine cellar where all the region's producers are represented. The cloisters function as a winter garden, giving support to the cafeteria where you can taste the famous muscatel of Setubal. This is the ideal space for two or a family to visit, relax and get to know better, everything Setubal has to offer.

Reviewed By Irene C - Prangins, Switzerland

I visited the wine shop and was really pleased to see so many bottles from producers of the area. Prices were really good, basically covering all ranges. They also had a selection of other products, like jams, teas and beers.
I definitely recommend visiting this shop!

Fort of Sao Filipe

Reviewed By Pedro J

The best thing about this place is the perfect view you get. Setúbal, Tróia, the sea and the mountain, all together in one place. It is also worth visit for the building itself, but unfortunately it is not very well maintained. It has been lately inaccessible to the public, one can just hope it's due to renovations and good maintenance for increasing the interest of a visit.
