Today this long stretch of beaches has been built up with bars, clubs, and shopping areas. Unlike many built up areas, you can still find lots of locals going to the beach in the afternoon. You will find many friendly locals. The surf can be strong and have a serious undertow. See the flags or banners to know how it... More

Costa isn't an area most tourist may initially hear about. It's untouched in a way, not too touristy, yet has all the amenities that will make you want to stay for weeks. Gorgeous beaches!! There's a little train that will take you to the 21 long beaches around the area. You don't have to go too far... The restaurants are... More

It is a nice place to stay especially for those who are looking for a sunny spot near the beach. The town offers a variety of tourist services and accomodation. Cons: the nearby beaches are crowded and the place is rather loud.

White sand beach with lots of surfing opportunities. Slpit into three areas by breakers -- but all three are guarded by very attentive life guards. Watch for the flags to show the curretn state of the water (we had a few Red flag days but most were green! The surf is kind of unpredictable here.. bring an umbrella the sun... More

This bar/restaurant name is Caffe Radical, its original. Outside it look like another average coffee/bar/restaurant, but its not. They have a selection of toasted sandwichs, toast, "prego no bolo de caco (thin and tender steak on bread) with fries, natural juices, sangria,beer and of course "bica" (coffee) and other good thinks. To get there, cross the road from the Costa... More

It was our first visit and we never thought it will be this much amazing. Amazing sandy white beaches stretching for 24 km, you can choose any spot and grab it for free along with the locals. Water current is a bit strong and not recommended for amateur swimmers but at first it feels like its frozen but your body... More

The town is very little, and may have bad traffic in the summer. The parking isn't bad. The beach is clean, and you can find refreshments along the beach. If you go with the car, you may have to pay a toll depending on the season.

The costa de Caparica is very nice and definitely worth a trip to enjoy the sea and the impressive waves! However, I do not recommend to get there with the ferry from Cais do Sodre to Cachillas and then onwards with the bus since you might end up in the local bus which takes forever to reach the coast (the...
