Full description
Explore the coast of Portugal’s picturesque Sesimbra on a unique coasteering activity, and experience the latest adventure sport craze to hit Portugal and Arrábida. Coasteering is a mix of rock climbing, rappelling, swimming and walking, and Sesimbra is one of the best spots for the sport. Thanks to its combination of a natural protected area with the blue green translucent waters of the sea, coasteering in Sesimbra is a special adventure guaranteed to be a thrill whatever time of year. Meet your guide at the Porto de Abrigo to collect your coasteering equipment. As you’d expect, this activity requires several security measures, and you will be assisted and monitored by experienced professionals all the time. You’ll be provided with a helmet, buoyancy aid wet suit, and trainers. Some routes require rappelling and the use of a harness. Ropes and rescue kits are available in case of an emergency, but typically the activity is a cool and calm experience. Marvel at the breathtaking landscapes as you swim, walk, climb, and jump. Clamber over magnificent rocky escarpments that plunge over bays and coves.

    I’ve done plenty of things in the US that said “moderate effort required” or “bring good hiking shoes” that had handrails the whole way or the like. As long as you follow the guides’ instruction and take reasonable caution, you’ll be perfectly fine. However, they are not overselling the level of excursion here. Climbing slippery rocks, jumping from 6-9 meter heights, and dangling from cliff faces are all real parts of this adventure with some of the most beautiful views along the way. I also appreciated the genuine effort to preserve nature.

    Superb experience! Brilliant, competent and caring guides. An experience with various activities: jumps at varying heights (between 4 and 8m), a sensational zip line, rock climbing and swimming, all in a splendid landscape. We even got a little snack at the end of the activity! We were able to taste a very very good local specialty. Thank you to the entire Natural Vertante team!

The scenery was gorgeous so I recommend taking a go pro if you want pictures or videos. This is a very active experience so make sure you talk with the team if you have any illnesses, conditions, or injuries! They are very accommodating and will help you have the best experience!
