How to get there

Arrábida, here we come!


As it is a natural reserve and because it is a more inhospitable area, access tends to be more complex. However, it is possible to get to Arrábida in various ways. We tell you everything you need to know:

In order to regulate the accesses and try to maintain quality and safety in the bathing areas of the Arrábida coast, the “Arrábida Without Cars” programme was created, which aims to regulate the access area to this “Our Portuguese Paradise” – it is in force during the bathing season, between June 15th and September 15th.
