Come and dive in the Luiz de Saldanha Marine Park

With its fine sands, turquoise waters, a Moorish castle and a fortress high on the hillside, this former fishing village is less than an hour from Lisbon.

The village of Sesimbra retained its discreet charm with narrow streets, outdoor cafes and a palm tree walk on the seafront.

Water sports, especially diving, guided walks, bird watching, dinosaur footprints are some of the many programs that entertain visitors.

The mouth of the river Sado, the mountain range and the Natural Park of Arrábida, Cape Espichel, the lagoon of Albufeira and the beach of Meco are part of the natural landscape of Sesimbra

The Marine Park Prof. Luiz Saldanha is a protected area, with natural and unique wealth at national and European level, with numerous species of fauna and flora that have increased in number and size since the creation of the park in 1998.
