COSTA DA CAPARICA

Lisbon's summer mecca



Costa da Caparica


You won't find much seclusion on this coast, but if you want easy access to restaurants, cafés, and public transportation, join the crowds at the vast beaches of Caparica. They are popular and lively in the summer, even at night when most bars stay open until late with music and dancing.

To get here, take the TST bus number 153 from Praça de Espanha close to the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, or number 161 from Praça do Areeiro. You may also take the ferry from Cais do Sodré station to Cacilhas, and then bus 135 from there.

In season, a little open-air train passes through most beaches along this coast -- ring the bell to stop at the beach of your choice (stops are numbered).
The best ones are Morena and Sereia, surrounded by dunes and with good bars.

Increasingly popular is Praia da Cabana do Pescador due to its beach bar that offers live music, sofas, massages, and refreshing drinks. Although popular, it never becomes too crowded, as there is plenty of sand and the calmer waves here attract many to the water.

Continue down the coast and you'll eventually reach Meco.

Stay at the Beach!


This isn't a major resort area like Cascais, but there are a few reasonably-priced hotels if you want to wake up by the sea. Here are your options: Costa da Caparica hotels
