  • More than steep path, including the stones fall sometimes, the game is worth the candle. If you have not forgotten your picnic, you are in paradise. Pity the fools to leave their waste on-site. So please, think to respect nature and bring a garbage bag.

  • A very nice beach, with a very difficult access, but worth the effort. Beach unattended without garbage collection without bar or infrastructure. A paradise to preserve. A good day out.

  • Ribeira do Cavalo is a beach not equipped in the Park of Arrabida. Spectacular with its sand and clear water in the middle of the rocks but not easy to achieve. On foot it takes three quarters of an hour on a trail where do you need good shoes and take everything. Now there is also a boat service because it has become known. Less wild.

  • Stunning. Isolation. Looks like a beach in Brazil. Curiously, when I went there all the Portuguese locals were saying the water was warm, but when I went in it felt a little cool, but still good for a swim.
  • Remember the time that beach was just use by locals and, on peak time was no more than 5 people. Now that time have gone and its so bad see my old beach like that. At least clean as you seen before you left!
  • super nice and secluded beach with an adventerous (partly..) descent (about 15-20 mins down and 10-15 up). there´s nothing down there, so bring your own gear and also bring a trashbag. beach is quite big and sandy but gets rockier when in the water.
  • Not the typical Portuguese beach. Isolated. Crystal clear water.
  • Beautiful quiet beach. Reachable by boat from Sesimbra or some trekking down the cliff. No infrastructures or life guard. A little paradise for the adventurous. It is getting more famous each year so let's hope it won't be destroy with too much tourism soon.
