Really enjoyed our visit to the beach here. Gets very busy, so don't expect a quiet experience. The water is nice, but extremely cold. We took some nice pictures here and enjoyed being out in the sun. There is no shade anywhere, so be careful as the sun gets very strong. We had to go and get food, just for... More

Really enjoyed the day at the beach here. We rented an umbrella and two chairs for 11 euro for the day which also included table service to order drinks and food from the bar. The waves are massive so lots of fun to swim there or even surf. We travelled from Lisbon on the ferry (10 mins) and took a... More

Other reviews cover details about arriving... but just an added note about sun.... There is virtually no place with natural shade... Unlike the Caribbean or other sunny destinations, there are no palm trees - just short scrubby bushes on top of the dunes. There is no place to escape the sun. Of course, this is the attraction - but also... More

From Lisbon you can get the 161 bus from Areeiro station (or from Praca d'Espanha). It's about 10 euros for a return ticket. 30-45 minutes to get to Costa Caparica (depending on the traffic) Once in the village, you need to walk a bit to the beach, then you can either sit with the crowds or take the little "tourist"...

The beach is beautiful, sandy and spacious. I agree with people who claim that. But hold on, I'd like to point out and underline a characteristic that anyone seems to care about: water is literally FROZEN. I experienced swimming in Tenerife (Canary Islands) last year and Australia as well, both are bathed by the ocean but, though bit colder, I... More

This is a good beach to get away from the city for a few hours, however the beaches are crowded. The beach felt safe and there wasn't the constant harassment to buy sunglasses or other junk. The small town has a super market in it which we used to get drinks and snacks from but ever where seemed reasonably priced.

First things first, the beach here is great. It has big waves and is sandy. I like a strong sea and this certainly delivered. The life guards were also very diligent which made me feel safe despite the crashing waves. The main downsides are, 1) getting there on public transport 2) the feeling that the resort has hit hard times.... More

Its a very convenient location to spend a day at a very clean water beach near Lisbon. Good for surfing only on special occasions but always full of people. No room for localism factor like it was 20 years ago due to the tourists always flowing in and out with the tides :-) Even if you are a good swimmer,... More

We decided to hit Costa Da Caparica in Sep in hopes to stay away from its popularity in the summer with tourists. It is south of Lisbon, approximately 15 mins drive with no traffic. It was rainy, foggy and about 12 degrees when we drove down. Ok, maybe it wasn't a good idea as we could barely see anything until... More
