"Seaside Sesimbra" Sesimbra by Martin_S.

Sesimbra Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 120 photos

Our friend Antonio took us for a short trip from Lisbon/Cascais down south past "the" river to Sesimbra. This used to be a small peaceful fishing village where you could enjoy the sea and have a good lunch from what was brought in by the fishermen. Today it is turning into a tourist/beach town. But on the day we visited, the ocean was still too cold (in May) for enjoyable swimming and the beach was almost empty.

The small town is perched on the sides of the mountain leading down to the sea and all the streets seem to go UP...

Some of the older architecture is quite nice with the facades decorated with tiles.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful and quiet beach when we visited
  • Cons:Atlantic Ocean is too cold to enjoy swimming
