Don't forget your camera, great photos to be taken, the only minus is the lack of parking spots next to the nice points.

It is a pretty trail going along a couple of ridges. It has also a few ups and downs as you go from one ridge to the other BUT do not attempt it unless you have a GPS and some Orienteering skills. We got a one sheet map from the tourist office and with the instructions from the very kind... More

The natural park meets the sea with a dramatic coastline dotted with small fishing villages and some little fortresses. A nice big green area - with a cement factory next to it (why??!).

This is a warning for all tourists with a rental car! All rental cars are recognised by their numberplates!!! Thieves know that. We went to Arrabida National Park. The environment was fantastic. We stopped at the beach on road 379-1 near Figuerinha. While we were on the beach for a moment our rental car, a Nissan Micra was opened with... More

An hour from Lisbon is the Arrabida natural park.The coastal drive is exhilirating and the beaches are wonderful for swimming. Go in the week to have a more peaceful experience.You can drive down to Portinho da Arrabida where there are restaurants and small guesthouses and a diving school.

Overlooking the ocean on one side and the country side on the other, this is a must see in Setubal. Not for the faint hearted to drive up and down the winding road but well worth it. Go in the afternoon so the fog has burned off.

We just took a drive through Arrabida. The views were breathtaking and there are some well signposted walks and little beaches that had that "instant relaxation" effect. Will definitely be going back.
