Arrabida Natural Park, Setubal

4.8
#1 of 59 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.

  • It's not the first time I visit but whenever I love. It's beautiful, climb through the Sierra and back to the beach. Start with the door of the Arrábida after having photographed the do alto da serra Galapagos and galopinhos. The end on the beach of figueirinha beach. Is enjoy and learn about the castle of of São Filipe. Rent a car. It's great.

  • Following along the coast in Setubal in a winding road and with wonderful views to the sea, see Troy. Slow in passing by praia da Figuerinha and continue until the vegetation surrounded by Portinho da Arrabida. There Park and walk towards the beach and enjoy the calm and beauty of the vegetation covering the rocky cliffs. Try it and enjoy.
