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. Park on the road and take the steps to Galapos beach with... More

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.

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
