Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Lisbon and get back to nature at the remote beach of Sesimbra. Cross the Tagus River on the iconic 25 de Abril Bridge and then journey on to Ribeira do Cavalo to discover one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Relax on the hard-to-reach beach and go for a swim and snorkel in the sea, if conditions allow. Jump from the rocks if you are feeling brave! Then, head back to Lisbon and stop at the Cristo Rei statue of Christ for amazing views of the city. Look down at the beach and blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In case of schedule restrictions for accessing the Christ-King square, you will stop at the Viewpoint Boca do Vento next to the Christ-King or at Sesimbra Castle.

Ze was a fantastic tour guide! He took us down a mountain side to see a stunning beach view and eventually to the beach itself. The snorkelling itself was not the best given the quality of the water - but apparently this is the same all around Portugal! The beach itself was lovely to relax on. Afterwards Ze took us to another besides seeing area next to the sea and a bridge - again lovely and worth seeing. Overall a nice afternoon and an excursion that I would recommend.

Excellent and breathtaking

When I was preparing my trip, I saw that it was close to 30 degrees and I wanted to book a beach excursion and soon I came across this excursion. I could never have imagined that the beach was so remote and that there was a path leading to it. The hike was quite tough. But in the end it was a nice view and a nice experience. Our guide Manuel was the sweetest, most attentive and patient guide I have experienced. After that we went to the Christ statue, something I also had on my list. In short, a very nice experience that you must have experienced. Well worth it.

This was a fantastic Tour. The timing is great, starting at 2:30pm means that youll be at the beach and then going back (to other view points) during sunset, which is great. Getting to Ribeira is not that difficult, the average fit person can easily handle it (shoes / sneakers preferred). The guide is very friendly, positive person. I had a great day. The value for money is really great.
