The Troia Peninsula, by the Sado estuary, has several superb soft sand beaches. A frequent car ferry service departs from the port in Setubal, reaching Troia in 15 minutes.
Some areas are highly developed (including an exceptional 18-hole golf course), but along its 18km (11 miles) of coast, you can find untouched sandy beaches lined with dunes and pinewoods.
Those searching for peace and quiet can still find it here.
