Trekking in the Arrábida hills is a pleasure difficult to explain in words. Starting in the typical village of Azeitão, walk the paths of rich woods to the foothills of the mountain. Here begins the real climb, initially feels we are walking through tunnels submerged by vegetation, until we reach the highest points with less vegetation and where we can enjoy a magnificent view.
The ascent culminates in the highest point of the mountain, a landmark called 501. Here you can enjoy the landscape that goes from Sintra Palace (in a clean day) in one side to the Atlatic Ocean and Troia resort on the other side. From there is always going down until you reach Portinho Arrábida beach, one of the seven Portuguese Natural Wonders.

The Arrabida natinal park is a beautifull coastline with hills and valleys. The views of the ocean are remarkable. My favourite spots are the Convento de Arrabida (you need to book in advance for a tour - it is a gem of a convent). After the visit of the convent I recomend having lunch at one of the restaurants of the Portinho da Arrabida.

The drive through the Park Natural da Arrabida is a memorable experience with breathtaking views of the sea, pristine beaches and the sheer drop! Around Lisbon took us through this amazing landscape on our way to do some dolphin watching on the mouth of the Sado river that we could see up in the distance. But the drive that blows your mind is the little winding road that goes down to the to the little beach at Portinho da Arrabida.

Rui gave us a break there for lunch, a chance to take a dip but warning that we had to get out on time to catch the catamaran at Setubal.

The little winding road down was made narrower still with the hundreds of cars parked to the bottom, and luckily for us, the police were kind enough to let Rui take the card down on the promise that he would drive up immediately after dropping us - really good traffic control there.

Nothing like lunch of fresh sardines and good wine on the waters edge to top a wonderful drive through the Arrabida.

This area has it all! High hills, plunging down into the greenblue sea. Small beaches and narrow roads. Use some hours here, enjoy the beach, and then go to Setubal to have some of the best fish or Octopus in the area. You can also do it by bike!

Park Natural da Arrabida has beutiful sites, its just a park with small trees but the view is superb very difficult to reach there, as the trafic is controlled and roads are narrow. Ifyou can go down to Portinho da Arrabida you will see the beatiful beach with transparent water. Enjoy the silence of nature. Visit the convent its not open frequently see the time table. If you can pass till Setubal the trip is worthy seeing, but be careful you may not be allowed to pass We passed!!!
