The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Aroeira - Verdizela
The beaches are the favourite spot to Lisbonites spend their weekends and vacations as is the closest seaside resort to Lisbon. It is located on the occidental coast of Península de Setúbal, southwest of Lisbon, covering an area of around 10 km2 from the sea to the scarp.
From the left margin of Tagus river and the estuary of Albufeira, the coastal extent is approximately 30 kilometres of immense beach.
This unbelievable place is crossed by geological and geomorphological sights of vital interest for its scientific and natural resources, i.e. a prehistoric beach landscape is that is formed by amazing carved and covered with vegetation cliffs, large erosion deposits and huge ravines.
Not less famous, the most scenic and dominant element of the area: the Botanical Reserve of the National Fame Preserve of Medos, known as the King's Pine Forrest, the result of a Portuguese King ´s order to plant the land to reduce deforestation and incursion of dunes. Less but not least, Mata das Dunas, that still remains a natural forest at the base of the beach.
Despite the fishing industry, the beach and the sea are both responsible for bringing to this region a seasonal tourist influx that make its economy work.
You may ride a bike or have a walk on the sea wall while having fun avoiding the salty splashes.
If you prefer, a small train will take you along the coast providing access to the hugely lengthy beach. During the day, the fishing boats arrive and bring in their nets and the beach goers, body boarders and surfers run to help and experience. It is lovely to observe the prows of these boats, embellished with traditional paintings.
These beaches are great for surf, bodyboard, windsurf and kitesurf. Pay attention where you choose to laze, there are different character beaches from gay communities, nudist persons and family- orientated.
Next to Mata dos Medos, you´ll find the biggest residential and golf resort around Lisbon, named Herdade da Aroeira. Around 600 meters from the beach, located in a preserved area, the resort has around 50 fenced hectares, private security 24 /24, and is overgrown with pines and small lakes. Offers 2 golf courses with 18 holes each and a golf academy with a very peasant club house. For the youngest, there is a very appealing tropical pool, a funny playground and 4 tennis courts and a truly contact with nature. A distinct restaurant, a supermarket, a stationary and a pharmacy are also available. All these features make Herdade da Aroeira the place to be on vacation.
Everywhere, maritime flavors are another major attraction. The gastronomy is excellent. Stews and fish soups are very famous, although there's nothing like eating a freshly caught fish, seaside and surrounded with the traditional and welcoming environment. Be pleased to accompany the meal with the unique Portuguese wine.
Charneca da Caparica
1500m away from the villa there is a shopping area with a small supermarket, cafeteria and bar. Just behind the villa there are tennis courts.
3km away you will find a bigger supermarket, a few restaurants and Aroeira golf resort with two 18-hole championship golf courses (Aroeira I and Aroeira II), four tennis courts, a spa and a healthcare centre, a communal tropical swimming pool, a playground, a shopping centre, bars, snack-bars and restaurants.
Verdizela is surrounded by a stretch of 30 km of the best beaches in Portugal, starting from the lively beaches near the centre of the village Costa da Caparica, to the almost deserted beaches of the south area, ideal for water or sand sports.
Less than 5 km away, you have beach bars and small restaurants specialized in grilled fish, some of them with wonderful terraces to enjoy the sunset. There is a wide range of beach bars that after nightfall turn into discos or live music bars.
