Fabulous, the weather super 30c. Virtually empty when we arrived. Maybe not enough parking for high season. Just a lovely large beach, allowing access along the coast!!!

I grew up here, this has always and will always be my backyard…
There is something very special here that I can’t duplicate anywhere else in the world. When growing up, we all dreamt about the Pacific and now that I live in the Pacific Northwest, all I want is to go back to my beloved Sado 😞

It is a paradise beach. Access and parking may be difficult. The descent to the beach doesn't help either, but it's worth it. Perhaps one of the best beaches in the world...

Beautiful beach but a big problem to park the car. Far too little parking space. The water is very calm and crystal clear.

Breath taking views in a great location, making you feel being in an exotic location worldwide.
Access only via buses as cars not allowed in protected area, making this feel even more exotic.
Ensure you have a drink at the bar on the swinging chair while enjoying the beautiful sunset.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK BY THIS BEACH IF YOU HAVE A RENTAL CAR!!! Our car was broken into and all our luggage was taken even though we were parked next to lots of other cars right by the main road. Nothing was visible (luggage was in the boot) but people target rental cars and smash the windows. It is not safe to park by these beaches and the police did not seem surprised when we reported the crime in Setubal. Please do not risk it as it is not safe even though it looks like it is.

Galapinhos beach was definitely a hidden gem! It was the most beautiful beach that we had seen around Serra da Arrábida! It’s surrounded by the park and its nature! It has a gorgeous view! Definitely worthy seeing it!
