Very nice place to visit. Go just before sun set to see 'magic' :) bit dangerous with small kids, better keep the at hand because the cliffs are dangerous.

Fantastic place! Calm and beautiful. Although it's difficult to get there without a car (but you can!) it's worth every minute of your time. Be ready to wander around and enjoy evry step you take. A must-see in Setubal!
