Cross the Tagus river, however – via the 25th April Bridge, Europe’s biggest suspension bridge overlooked by the Cristo Rei statue, much like Rio’s Christ the Redeemer – and the picture is very different.
What Lisbon’s south side may lack in historic character, though, it makes up for with miles of sandy beaches and rolling surf at Caparica, a modern high-rise resort hugely popular with mainly locals.

One of the better stories about one of the less covered of the many attractions and sights only an hour away from Down Town Lisbon.
Play golf, go surfing, eat fantastic fish & seafood in interesting and charming villages, go trekking in beautiful nature, sun bath or swim naked on the fantastic beaches. Costa Azul has it all.
Vila de Sesimbra with Cabo Espichel & the Municipality’s Castle, the Arrabida Hills in the Arrábida Natural Park & it’s famous Portinho da Arrábida with a beautiful beach, not to mention Setubal with its fortress & the Monastery of Jesus are just a few of Costa Azul’s many attractions
You can reach Costa Azul by boat and bus or by the the new ‘discovery’ we found last weekend. A small scooter 🙂
