What Else Can You Experience In Costa de Caparica?

If you love nature (besides water), you can take in the sights and do a little walking of Fear Woods, which can be found in the Protected Landscape of the Ancient Beach. You can also enjoy the desert beaches or take in some fishing at the Cova do Vapor village, which is near the Rio Tejo. However, you’d prefer to spend your time on vacation; you can enjoy it in Costa de Caparica.

The village allows you to partake in its daily routine of buying fresh fish and vegetables, eat or drink at the beach bars and do all kinds of things – without having to drive. Go for a run along the promenade by the sea at dusk or dawn, taking in the sound of the surf.

Why Lisbon Beach, you ask?
