Expansive stretch of sandy beach backed by cliffs & dunes, also featuring a clothing-optional area. This is one of the cleanest and most refreshing beaches south of Lisbon.
With the exception of flocks of seagulls, you’re likely to be all by yourself in many areas.
With this sense of isolation, it’s not surprising that the final stretch of sand is popular with nudists.
Although one of the best on the Lisbon coast, this beach is a little challenging to reach by public transportation.
You must take the bus to Sesimbra from Lisbon’s Praça de Espanha bus terminal, and get off at Santana.
From there, around 8 buses daily run to Meco village.
Be sure to ask for a timetable for your return trip. Stop at the very pleasant beachfront bar for drinks and meals.
