Costa da Caparica

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 miniature coastal train takes you to the immense 11km beach. You can still see some small fishing boats with decorated bows but they are increasingly rare.
