  • We're in the month of August so he must get up early to be able to Park - we were in the top 10 and it was 9:45. It will be anyway at the roadside because there is no parking. Attention +++ besides the road is one-way from 9: 00 and 20: 00 between Setúbal and Creio Beach (in this sense). This allows the cars to park on 2 sides of the road but impossible at the time of move in 2 directions. So either you take the tour by Setubal, you either you stop at the car park in the land of the Creio (but will be early) and finish on foot (about 5 min on the road). It is in my opinion the only difficulty to go to the beach. The small path that goes down it is not that hard (and I'm far from Kilian Jornet). There are no signs but your smartphone (GPS) will show you the path. It is divided in 2 at a time: left down all right and you have qq small rocks to down - right that joined wooden staircases and it is even easier. 2 arrive at the beach and none are impassable even for my 3 year old daughter and in tong! 5 min down - 10 min to go to break everything up. No need to describe the beach photos speak for itself... Sublime. Small bar for refreshment. A few umbrellas to rent. No shower. Galapos beach is accessible on foot at low tide.

  • It is a beauty, a natural wonder... but inaccessible for the amount of cars, people, narrow roads... the truth is that the car because I didn't have a good experience... but recommended in any case... when there are no people

  • Very nice beach, with access through tracks in the monte, which will contribute to a tranquil space, overlooking the Sierra and a sea that, although ice cream has a wonderful color! Very pretty!

  • Impressive paradise at less than 1 hour drive from Lisbon. Sorrounded by a natural park area. I think it would be difficult to park in summer. I went in late October though, and we were lucky enough with such a great weather that we even had a bath!
  • Drive around the back way. Beautiful drive and less busy. The walk to the beach is a bit rocky so wear decent footwear. Water is cold. Sand is soft. No waves in the ocean. Good relaxing beach. Get there before 10am to avoid the crowds and easily park.
  • Lovely place with an awesome view, with hills around and so green, clear water and sand. It is crowded but relaxing environment. It has a small coffee with not much alternative and quite expensive, i advice taking your own food and drinks.
  • Great, popular beach! Late summer parking can get very hard, prepare to park over a kilometer away. Came here two days in a row during my first time ever in Portugal. Waters are nice, beach is narrow and can get crowded especially during high tide, but lovely vibe.
  • wonderful beach, at weekdays it is better, could be crowded on Weekends, parking at the street, steep way to the beach (5 min) take an sun umbrella
