Plage de la Figueirinha
One of the best beaches in Lisbon. Quite a travel but worth comparing to other options.

Take the bus and visit Figueirinha one of the most famous beaches in the region, making it quite popular during the high season. The low waving creates excellent conditions for swimming and the long sandy beach invites for a long walk. The beach of Figueirinha, awarded with the Blue Flag, has…
Relaxing Beach with an amazing sand island where you can walk in perfectly and enjoy the breeze.
Praia da Figueirinha is a stunning beach that lies within the Arrabida National Park. The beach offers golden sands, clean bathing waters and is surrounded by stunning pine covered hills.
“Das praias mais bonitas da Baía de Setúbal, com o bar /restaurante de praia mais giro e agradável da zona - o Ondagalapos. O areal é muito mais pequeno do que o da praia da Figueirinha o que torna o espaço mais acolhedor. Tem uma rampa de acesso (no local da casas de banho portáteis na estrada principal) e depois uma escadas com poucos degraus, o que torna o acesso às praias melhor do que o outro em que são só escadas.”
“The beaches of Serra da Arrábida are extremely beautiful. You can get there by car or bus. In the high season cars can only go to Figueirinha beach. Then you can walk or take a bus. If you are into running one thing that I love doing is: run to portinho da Arrábida. About 12km if I remember correctly. Then come back walking on the beach when the tide is low you can walk al the way to Figueirinha”
“Great food market where you can buy all kinds of fresh local food, from fresh fish to fresh vegetables. Everyday open from 07:00 until 14:30 (Besides Monday, closed)”
