“Faboulus beaches near Lisbon”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Troia is a peninsula located south of Lisbon. Troia is best reachable from Lisbon either by car and the ferry from Setubal or just by car which is around 100 kilometers longer. Troia has stretches of long white sandy beaches to offer. Troia itself consists of holiday appartments, a marina, some hotels and restaurants and a golf court. The rest of the peninsula is kind of a nature reserve and excellent for walking along the beaches, playing golf, relaxing. Recommendable for quiet holidays on lovely and quiet beaches especially after the high season.

“Troia one of the best porguese beaches”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The sightseeing is outstanding, the sea water crystalline and the dolphins adorable. This peninsula has been completely recovered and modern hotels and apartments replaced the 20 year old buildings. A must try ...

“Nice beach for swimming”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This beach, along with Portinho de Arrabida, were the only ones we found available for swimming in the greater Lisbon area, the rest being more suitable for surfing. We walked past the first organized beach which was closer to the marina and continued to the next one closer to the Aqualuz hotel. The water was fairly clear, as was the sandy beach (the stupidity of some of us who like to bury cigs, orange peels etc in the sand was present here and there!!). We hired umbrella and 2 sunchairs at the price of €15, which felt quite much, even if the person responsible informed us that the whole set was reserved for us for the whole day (in the long run it was quite convenient that we had our place reserved when we came back to the beach after lunch, but we still thought €15 was quite pricy). There was a kiosk where one can buy water,coffee or refreshments. Moreover, there were both toilet and showers nearby, which made the whole experience better.

“Excellent beach surrounded by nature.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful white sand beach peninsula. There are a lot of options for accommodation like hotels, resortes or particular houses for rent. The best way to get there is drive to Setubal and get a ferry from there and if you're lucky you'll see some dolphins playing around. There's also some nice beach bars and restaurants in the area. Don't miss the archaeological roman ruins a couple of km away.

“a cement experience, very snobbish place”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Well, it is not my type of seaside place: condos, condos, cement, natural scenes which looks artificial.

the beach is very beautiful, but all in all, i would definitely recommend somewhere else in Portugal for a seaside experience. same for Sol Troia
