  • 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!

  • One of the best beaches in Europe and well deserved it is...
  • Secluded, quiet... the best beach in Europe (voted in 2017)
  • Awesome beach with awesome view! The water is transparent but a bit cold. The beach itself is quite clean. Go ahead and check the beach, you won't regret it!
  • Breathtaking!
