Sesimbra, located on the southern side of Lisbon’s headland, was once a strategic medieval fortress. Over the years, a small fishing village has manifested outside of the castle. The village faces a long, flat beach with a harbour at one end. The position of Sesimbra, combined with the breakwater that protrudes from the land, makes the village an unappealing surfing destination. 

However, just 5 minutes from Sesimbra, stunning hidden coves hide amongst the cliff tops. Sesimbra is accessible via a sixty-minute bus ride, which makes the village an appealing destination for a day trip away from Lisbon. An enormous vacation resort overlooks the water, a popular accommodation for those seeking a weekend away from the city.
