    As I told citizens of sesimbra, until 3 years ago, no one was going to that beach, or the same Portuguese, but a report was made and it was as the boom. As no, had to go to see if was true everything that was said from the beach. Us, a couple, were walking from where begins the way, since there are people who are going from sesimbra. It took about 25 minutes down to the beach, if it is true that download can be more complicated for the slopes, because again it took just 15 minutes to upload. I believe that, like these willing to get because you're loaded, because the road is long, when you arrive and see the beach you get surprised, and views as going closer makes it look like a magnificent beach. When you get there, you realize that the beach has two parts, one Sandy and the other full of stones where not had anyone lying. All those who come by kayak or boat, begin to gather on the sandy beach and to the end that you don't fit. Water, as in whole portugal, this very cold, but it gave me the feeling that here is more than cold or even aldeia do meco sesimbra. In conclusion, much hype for it, or will I have seen many beaches in my life and this not fascinated me.

    The beach is beautiful but water is not transparent since in addition to get the algae, there are many remains of fuel which let the endless boats that bring tourists to the beach. Also trash that leave tourists and some gifts of people who goes with the dog but is not civilized. I do not think that it worth at least in August. On the difficulty of the descent, they are about 20 min but with shoes becomes no problem.

  • It's a beautiful beach but unfortunately to get there you will need to walk about 10-25 minutes through a rocky path so I don't recommend to bring your flip-flops
  • Beautiful beach. Around 10 minute walk to get there.
  • Make sure to have plenty of water and food with you before heading down, as you need to climb for around 40 minutes to get to the beach from the parking area. Totally worth it but keep in mind it's really hard to get down.
  • Very nice. Little bit difficult to reach, but water colors are incredibile
  • It's a peace of paradise 1 hour from the capital Lisbon... It has no easy access, you will walk about 20 minutes to get to the beach, in a hard trail... But in the end it was worth it!
