  • Since 1970 I know this beach. Originally known as Galapos, this was divided in 2 by the fact of having a separation with some rocks. Galapinhos is the smallest beach following Galápos. Limap sand, crystal clear water. Excellent area for diving, and even for children, because there is hardly any ripple that might put the same in danger.

  • 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
