Arrabida Natural Park, Setubal

4.8
#1 of 32 in Parks in Alentejo
Famous for its golden beaches and secluded bays, Arrabida Natural Park stretches along the southeastern coastline of the Setubal peninsula. A protected area sheltering Mediterranean plant and animal wildlife, the vast park covers more than 100 sq km (42 sq mi) of mountainous landscapes covered with olives, pistachios, and lavender. The park's hills serve as a permanent home to a large population of native deer and boar, while the lower areas protect butterflies, beetles, eagles, and kestrels. To learn more about the area's diverse wildlife, visit the park's oceanographic museum inside a 17th century fort. Choose a car or motorcycle to explore the park--or take a guided boat tour along the coastline. Put Arrabida Natural Park into our Setubal journey maker tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
