Caparica is just across the bridge from Lisbon and only 25 minutes from the airport. The beach is nice, very sandy although it is much better if you drive a bit further (less than 10 mins) through Caparica to a beach front cafe called Unik as the beach is much more secluded and open to anyone, and food and drink...

Costa da Caparica is located on the other side of the Tejo River across from Lisbon. You can go by car or public transport. The centre of the beach is the town of Costa da Caparica. But all along the beach you have parking area's so you find a more quiet spot, because the beach stretches for miles and miles.... More

I travelled from Lisbon on the 161 bus from Areeiro metro. The bus stop is in a side street. When I got to Caparica I made the mistake of turning right and walking along the promenade. Here the beach is very narrow although the artificial piers of rock are interesting there is not really much space to walk on the... More

GRowing up in Lisbon, we spent ever summer trying to hunt down the ideal swimming beach. Finally, as an adult, going back with out 2 young sons, we found it. Easy to get to, easy to park, easy walk to the beach, lovely boardwalk/promenade with excellent restaurants, cafe''s, bars, ATMS. Slow gentle slope with long rolling waves. Day after day... More

On my first trip to Portugal, in 1974, I went to assist a colleague/friend of mine in an American company which had a factory in Fogueteiro. I was lodged in what I believe is today hotel Praia do sol. Less than a week later there was the revolution, with all the social upsets it brought. I remember walking to the... More

If you like Surf, the waves are perfect due to artificial reef, carefull with children, less windy then others in Portugal.

The best beaches of Greater Lisbon area. On the south bank of the Tagus river, a bit more distant then the Estoril/Cascais shoreline on the north bannk, has two clear advantages: less wind and 10 times the size. Public transport available. Problem is, if you're from the southbank, the traffic on the bridge between the two sides.

For those who love the ocean, waves, sand and good weather, nothing like cross the brigde from Lisbon heading to the Costa and have a good day at the beach.

Looked a bit scruffy and run down. There were a few Ok restaurants on the beach front which when seated within have a nice view but overall there were many nicer seaside towns to visit.
