Troia Beach, Troia

4.5
#1 of 136 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.

  • Although it was a windy day, the beach was clean and well attended. access was also well signposted.

  • Very nice beach, an area renovated and also very beautiful, although a little pricey and with lack of any nearby infrastructure. The beach itself is really pretty, with fine sand and very white, getting at the junction between the Sado River and the sea. Being that it is possible (although difficult) to show the bottom or in boat trip dolphins that inhabit in Sado.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Lovely beach. Shallow swimming. Closed down restaurant. Summer 2017
  • Not super clear water.as its peninsula..water has some dirt.and no bathrooms..just in a bar...neither chanhing rooms
