Set in the Serra da Arrábida National Park, just beyond the mouth of the Rio Sado estuary, is Praia da Figueirinha. This is one of the best known and most popular beaches in the Arrábida area and is one of the closest to the town of Setubal.
Figueirinha has a stunning backdrop of the Arrábida Hills along with a fine stretch of golden sand which forms a narrow sandbank extending out into the calm, clean waters of the Sado at low tide. You can walk out along this sandbar which also forms a safe, sheltered lagoon in front of the main beach.
Despite its wonderful natural surroundings Praia da Figueirinha manages to combine this with plenty of facilities - as you would expect from a Blue Flag Award beach. There is a lifeguard service here during the summer months and all the other amenities you'll need for a great family beach day.
As mentioned, the beach is popular, and being just over 7 km from Setubal means it can quickly becomes busy during the summer holidays.
