The endless peninsula of Tróia

It is absolutely worth crossing by ferryboat to the peninsula on the south margin of rio Sado, facing the city of Setúbal.

There await you miles of white sandy beaches bathed by calm waters in a unique summer place for relaxing in peace and quietness. Along the road or on the dunes, from praia da Comporta to praia do Pego, you will find nice restaurants where you can lunch or dine a magnificently prepared fish of your preference.

With a little luck, you may glimpse the dolphins swimming along the seashore while you enjoy the breath-taking view of Serra da Arrábida right in front of you.

A little further, at praia da Galé, the dunes are interrupted to present you to Melides, a cliff with over 5 million years.

To the interior of Tróia, you will find dehesas, pine forests and undulating carpets of rice paddies from the nature reserve of Sado estuary. It is the winter resort for many families of birds that nest in the region.

Climb aboard a trawler or an ancient Galeão do Sal (a typical boat) and venture into the waters of the Sado estuary where over 250 wildlife species, such as white storks and flamingos can be spotted. With a little luck your ride will be graced by the symbol of the estuary – Dolphins that accompany the boats with magnificent and elegant dives.

In both sea and rivers there is also plenty of fishing that more than a sport is an activity of great tradition. Existing simultaneously unique conditions to capture snook, snapper and bream, and sharp cliffs ideal for handline fishing. In the estuary, between the river and the ocean, the red mullet, sole and cuttlefish are the most abundant species.
