Sesimbra Tours

Sesimbra
Along the winding Portuguese coast lies Sesimbra, a small fishing village with a 17th-century fort overlooking the sea. Its 12th-century Moorish stone castle is perched up on jagged cliffs that drop down into calm Setúbal Bay. There is a small historic monastery within the castle walls, and the best mountain and sea views can be seen from a climb to the top.

Sesimbra is famous for its deep sea fishing and fresh seafood. There are several waterfront restaurants serving fresh fish, and fisherman will often auction off their catches from the harbor. The clear, protected waters of the bay create ideal swimming and scuba diving conditions. In addition to active water sports, there are excellent hiking trails, beaches, and natural parks in and just outside of town. With local beaches and an old town to stroll through, it’s easy to enjoy a quieter pace.

Practical Info

Sesimbra is located along the coast about 40 kilometers south of Lisbon, and buses bound for the village leave daily from Setubal or from Lisbon's Praça de Espanha station. The Castle of Sesimbra is open from 7 am to 7 pm daily, free of charge.
Address: Sesimbra, Portugal
