View is amazing. For us was too cold for swimming but landscape is just marvellous. It is not so clean like from the north of Lisbon. Without car it is too far from city to walk.

My favourite beach in Portugal, beautiful sigh views, clear water, just like other beaches in the arrabida is the access to the beach and parking problems in high season, but definitely deserve to visit.
