Beautiful clean beach
Jun 2020
Great beach to visit. Cleaned daily so the sand is great and the water clean, bit cold when i was there. Near the beach you find plenty of hotels, bars and good restaurants. There is parking on the seafront but it gets full quickly in the summer. If you drive, park at the top of the hill near the bus station and walk down approx 800 meters. The views are great

It has it all...!

The California beach is one of the two beaches bordering the small city of Sesimbra. It is spotless, cleaned thoroughly everyday, and offers all expected equipments. Its closeness to the various hotels, restaurants, bars and shops is an additional attraction. It is worth a day trip from Lisbon, if not a longer stay in one of the many accommodations available locally.

It’s my favourite beach in Sesimbra. Nice infrastructure, nice bars and restaurants. The sand is very clean. The water is also very clean and with great visibility. The only problem is the water temperature. :)

Beach Praia da California
Sep 2019
The beach is excellent.A special remark is the sun protectiondecks. Very comortable. I missed the the adjustable sun beds with mattress, with which we are spoiled in Italy. The beach is very clean and the environment very enjoyable. The beach is cleaned every morning.We are very enthusiastic about this beach area in Sesmbra. It is the best and most enjoyable part. The proximity of clean toilets increases the attractiveness. The beach bar has a good assortment and is relatively cheap.

Relaxing beach day
Jul 2019
We took an Uber from Lisbon to Sesimbra California Beach (~40min. drive, ~33 euros one way). It was 3 of us so splitting an Uber was reasonable. This fishing village is beautiful. It's not on the train tracks so getting to it is not easy via public transportation. This beach is big. There is plenty of space for everyone. Walking along the beach was super relaxing. I personally couldn't swim in the freezing water of the Atlantic Ocean but locals were swimming. Beach chairs (2 euros each) and a covered space are available for rent for a reasonable price. There are hotels across the street and many restaurants. We tried fresh local Atlantic Ocean black scabbardfish and sea bass. Fresh grilled fish is so delicious in Sesimbra. We wanted to spend the day relaxing and walking along the beach and this town didn't disappoint. I recommend the day trip from Lisbon for a nice relaxing beach day.

One of the wonderful beach in Portugal

If you are around Lisbon, you can rent a car and straight through the XXV April bridge you can enjoy the extraordinary town of Sesimbra.

Old fashion town on the straight on the sea with dozen of fresh fish restaurants, shops and bar.

The skyline of the ocean is absolutely stunning.

You will follow in love.

Hight recommended.

This is like reviewing Sesimbra
May 2019 • Couples
This is the waterfront to the town of Sesimbra. It's a reasonably long stretch of beach that's not overly wide, which gives you easy access to all the shops and restaurants of Sesimbra. It's calm and clean... and in the summer it is pretty crowded.
