Have you ever been to Sesimbra?
The mountains, sea and bright sunshine create a majestic atmosphere that can be admired from several magical spots: from the castle, the cliffs, Cavalo Fort or from the Quinta de Palames.
These viewpoints look over a small fishing village, which still remains virtually untouched, surrounded by imposing cliffs and bordered by the deep blue ocean. The Moorish castle overlooks the orange-tiled roofs that make up its skyline. This village’s heritage dates back to Pre-historic times and has been ruled by Romans, Visigoths and Moors. It offers tourists stunning natural beauty and a rich historical legacy, with great beaches, sea-side restaurants and various water-sports for relaxing days during your holiday in Portugal.

Canoeing is a type of sport that intends to bring its practitioners closer to nature. In parallel, it will bring enormous benefits to the cardiopulmonary system, since it is a modality that requires some physical effort in its practice, implying the maintenance of healthy habits of life in various fields. We suggest a diverse range of places to practice: Ponds, rivers and seas, with passage through caves and deserted beaches, full of transparent waters inviting dives.
