THE VILLAGE OF SESIMBRA
The municipality of Sesimbra is located in the Portuguese Riviera. It has great accessibility, being located about 30 km from Lisbon and Setúbal. Sesimbra has a coastal zone with more than 40 km, which begins in the Lagoa de Albufeira and ends in the Natural Park of Serra da Arrábida. From the environs of the Medieval Castle to the irreverent Praia do Meco and to the imposing Cabo Espichel, the Sesimbra county is full of stunning scenery and paradisiacal. Praia do Ribeira do Cavalo, a semi-wild beach with crystalline water, informally designated with the most Thai of Portuguese beaches, is joined by an idyllic coastline with the high transparency of the water. It is surely one of the most beautiful Portuguese beaches.
Between the transparency of the Atlantic Ocean and the green of the Serra da Arrábida there is the Marine Park Prof. Luiz Saldanha. It has a rich fauna and flora, where more than 1500 marine species are registered. Fruit of the proximity to the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park and growing environmental awareness, the whole municipality of Sesimbra has vast biodiversity, in extremely well-preserved spaces. The zone of Sesimbra is still well known for the practice of diving, being a reference at national and European level. Observe the biodiversity of Praia Ribeiro do Cavalo and Professor Luíz Saldanha Marine Park aboard the Aquarama.
