The village of Sesimbra has a long, central beach with waters calm enough for safe swimming.
Facing it is a series of restaurants specializing in seafood.
This is a small fishing village in a sheltered bay overlooked by a Moorish castle, that's quite popular as a summer destination, especially for the people of Lisbon.
It can be reached by buses that depart from the city of Setúbal and from Lisbon's Sete Rios terminal.
About a 40-minute walk from the center of town is one of Portugal's most beautiful beaches, the wild Praia do Ribeiro do Cavalo.
