It is a natural park, with magnificent landscapes and with a lot of external presures, this means constructiona and a cementery factory.

We went to the beach in Arrabida Park. It was a great place, very beautiful. You can go there by car, by the car park is up the hill, cars are not allowed to go down to the beach which was very nice. Parking costs 3 euros per day, and if you get there around 9 AM you can find... More

This is the most beautiful beach of the Lisbon area. Period. Covered by a green hill, you don't get much wind, as well. The water, as a consequence, is calm, even if a bit cold...

and the warm smell of sunny Portugal. Pine, eucalyptus (not native despite it's abundance). You might see eagles or goats or look out to sea and see dolphins or the odd whale that infrequently visits. Drive through and you won't be disappointed.

Being born and raised in Portugal (Lisbon) I often drove to Portinho da Arrabida which is so beautiful. At the end of the stay, I would drive back home by the same road and enjoy the nice views. I've been living abroad for many years, so when I now visit Portugal, I am a tourist... Last week, travelling North from... More

My trip to Portugal was unexpectedly extended for a couple of days so I joined a mountain bike tour to Park Natural da Arrabida. This is a must see for any Lisbon tourist who appreciates natural beauty. The ride was incredible. It included breathtaking mountain views, beautiful beaches, and ended with a delicious lunch right on the coast. Highly recommended!!

We were driving from the south into Lisbon, and went to Setubal and from there to Sesimbta, which took us right through this beautiful park with great views of the Atlantic Ocean. We tried to have lunch at Portinho da Arrabida beach, which looks beautiful, but it was impossible as the whole parking lot was filled with cars parked in... More

While visiting Setubal we booked a tour to see Arrabida Natural Park. What an amazing place, with white sandy beaches, interesting flora (our expert guide said some areas are protected), an old monastery, a moorish castle and a winery. Early June is a bit too cold to go swimming. Too bad, because I would have loved to go for a... More

Our favourite place visited after a week in and around Lisbon. Couldn't believe this was the Atlantic Coast but the views were breathtaking. The only downside were the facilities in that we struggled to find any public toilets. This is a must visit!
