Even though they each have their own characteristics, the beaches of Setúbal all share one feature which makes them unique: they are all within the Arrábida Natural Park.
The “Portinho da Arrábida” (Creiro), voted one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, has a cove which serves as a mirror, reflecting the mountain’s greenery overlooking the sand.
An area suitable for scuba diving, here you can marvel at the unique fauna and flora found in the clear waters of this beach.
Voted in 2017 as the best beach in Europe by Europe’s Best Destination, Galapinhos Beach is peaceful and sheltered, with calm seas and clear waters.
The calm sea and the beauty of the surrounding landscape make Figueirinha Beach (awarded with a Blue Flag) one of the region’s most well-known and most popular beaches during the summer.
As well as these beaches, there are also others which attract many visitors, such as Albarquel (the nearest to the city), Galapos or Coelhos.
