Itinerary for the 6 best beaches near Lisbon

In addition to Costa da Caparica, Fonte da Telha Beach is the closest option to Lisbon, since it is only 25 km from the capital. It is a quiet beach, with coarse sand, perfect for a day away from the hustle and bustle and with a lot of natural beauty.

Beach of fine and clear sand, in Barreiro. It is an ideal beach to go with children, for its cleanliness, for being equipped with showers, for having a maintenance circuit, as well as a good car park in the surroundings. Also noteworthy are the three traditional windmills (Moinho do Vento Gigante, Moinho do Vento Nascente, Moinho do Vento Poente), which are proof of the milling past of the area.

A true postcard, São Julião beach is very close to Ericeira and Mafra and only 45 km from Lisbon. Located at the end of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, this beach is perfect for disconnecting from the rhythm of everyday life and practising water sports.

50 km from Lisbon, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the country for its clear blue sea, is Tróia beach, where it is also possible to see dolphins. To get there, there are several options, but the most adventurous is, without a doubt, from the ferry, which is taken in Setúbal and crosses the Sado River.

For adventure lovers, Ursa Beach, in the municipality of Sintra, is an ode to wildlife and the beauty of nature. The fact that it is a beach surrounded by cliffs and two large rocks that have resisted the force of the sea makes going down to the sand quite a challenge. However, its natural beauty and tranquility make it one of the beaches to visit.

It is necessary to go down a winding path, but the tranquillity of the landscape is worth it. With calm sand and an impressive landscape, surrounded by cliffs, caves and tunnels, Adraga beach, in Sintra, also allows, when the tide is low, the connection with two other beaches (Namorados and Horse beaches).

The beach options in the Lisbon area are numerous, and we leave a few more to explore, such as Guincho, dos Galapos, Portinho da Arrábida or do Abano beaches
