Visit Lisbon’s most popular beaches, whether in summer or winter, and you’ll find places to suit every taste and temperament along this sun and sand-filled coast.
Just a few minutes from Lisbon are the 15 km of beaches at Costa da Caparica. It’s very easy to get there by car, crossing the bridge or catching one of the buses from Praça de Espanha or Campo Grande. And when you get here, the best thing is probably to jump on the mini-train that stops at all the beaches from the centre going south, which vary in mood and crowd. The beaches in the centre are the busiest, while those further away are popular with those who want to spend the whole day on the sand or sun loungers. Going north, you’ll find the calmer S. João beach. All the beaches share the fact of having excellent bars and restaurants where you can order a jar of sangria, grilled fish and a plate of clams. See if the beach doesn’t taste better that way.
