One of Lisbon’s latest must-visit places. This river beach, with its broad steps, attracts locals and tourists in search of hot sun tempered by the breeze of the river.
Ribeira da Naus is one of the most interesting places in Lisbon. Recently renovated, this old boatyard is today a surprising river beach, with a large grassy area and broad steps extending down into the river. Even though it is forbidden to bathe, this area linking Cais das Colunas, in Praça do Comércio, to Cais do Sodré is inviting for sunbathing and resting one’s feet after a hard day of pounding the streets. To make it even more comfortable, Ribeira das Naus has a kiosk and outdoor seating to make the most of Lisbon’s light and the best sunset in the city. Have a walk around this totally transformed riverside area. It’s a unique veranda onto the Tagus in a contemporary and attractive spot; a veritable river beach in the town centre, whose charms are to be enjoyed.
