Costa da Caparica
The Essential
This is the spa resort nearest to Lisbon. With its vast beaches, less polluted than those on the north shore, Costa da Caparica is one of the most popular places for the people of Lisbon at weekends. In high season, a small coastal train serves the immense 11km beach... There you can see some small fishing boats with decorated prows and help with the hauling up of the nets along with the summer visitors.
