Troia Beach, Troia

4.5
#1 of 135 in Outdoors in Alentejo
The word "paradise" comes to mind at Troia Beach, where a stretch of soft white sand meets the calm blue Atlantic. The area has been well developed for tourists, including a resort near the beach, yet the beach itself remains largely unchanged, with its sands extending out seemingly endlessly. Amenities include nearly every water sport imaginable, plus golf and tennis. To reach this gorgeous beach, take a ferry from Setubal. It can sometimes get crowded on the weekends, so just walk down the coast if peace and quiet is what you're after.

  • This beach is situated in Tróia peninsula, which is a reef with over 25 km long and 0.5 to 1.5 km wide. Are the Roman ruins of Troy from a broad set of salting fish. There are also numerous tourist resorts: many hotels, some restaurants, casino and beaches of white sand. The crossing is made of catamaran.

  • I honestly expected more from this beach, though is in a location that passes safety. Is very beautiful and worth it, mainly to see the sunset on the sun loungers.

  • Love Troia Beach in every way. Had a great week and enjoyed the beach and a cool dip after the Gulf.

  • Fantastic, huge beach with really incredible views over the Sado bay or the ocean, always accompanied by the lovely Arrábida. It's a must visit and you'll love it the first second.
  • Great beach until you reach the water or start looking for something to drink or eat. Lucking organisation, sunbeds are free which is a plus but the nearest convenience store is 10 mins walk from the beach. Water is far from crystal clear but considering the location is acceptable. Not impressed and not sure if I would come back when next in Lisbon.
  • Natural beach, but with big currents towards the north of the island. You have to walk to the west side in order to have a sea more calmed
  • Beautiful place
  • Lovely beach. Shallow swimming. Closed down restaurant. Summer 2017
