Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
Famous for its golden beaches and secluded bays, Parque Natural da Arrabida stretches along the southeastern coastline of the Setubal peninsula. A protected area sheltering Mediterranean plant and animal wildlife, the vast park covers more than 100 sq km (42 sq mi) of mountainous landscapes covered with olives, pistachios, and lavender. The park's hills serve as a permanent home to a large population of native deer and boar, while the lower areas protect butterflies, beetles, eagles, and kestrels. To learn more about the area's diverse wildlife, visit the park's oceanographic museum inside a 17th century fort. Choose a car or motorcycle to explore the park--or take a guided boat tour along the coastline.

  • If you like beautiful landscapes, mountain and beach definitely you should go there. Take some water with you as it gets really hot and there are no many places to buy drinks. It gives you the illusion of infinity that I love
  • We went here as it's highly rated, but it was kinda just some nice beaches and an uninteresting mountain or two. There's a cement factory stretching across a lot of the park that really takes away from it. It felt less like a national park and more like built up standard beach destination.
