Sesimbra is a fishing village located 40 km from Lisbon, surrounded by the beautiful forested hills of Serra da Arrábida, and west of it you will find the wild, breathtaking cliffs of Cape Cabo Espichel.
There is a Moorish castle, a coastal fort and many wonderful beaches. It is famous for its seafood restaurants where you can eat delicious fish freshly caught by the local fishing fleet. After a few days of intensive stay in Lisbon, changing the environment in the form of a typical southern European town will do good to everyone.
A trip to Sesimbra gives you opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe → Praia Ribeira do Cavalo.
