Arrabida Natural Park

Reviewed By Marcos C

At the beginning of the Portinho da Arrábida, considered one of the best Beaches in Europe. Not as fancy or expensive as the one next to it, but definitely more real, a restaurant with the balcony over the sea where you can see the transparent and translucent blue waters and the fishes waiting for a bit of bread to eat. The staff is very friendly with fishing know how and the fish is fresh and rich. Try the desert based on a Portuguese recipe of "Arroz doce" but with a fresh touch. A perfect example of Portuguese Seafood restaurant on the beach.

Troia Beach

Reviewed By Barbara S - San Diego, California

The Troia Beach is especially suited for families with small children because it is protected from the usually high waves of the other Beaches in the area. There is a café/restaurant with outside showers. Parking right next to the beach can be a problem but there is ample parking in park houses nearby. From the beach there is also a walk way to Troia Marina with shops and restaurants.
