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.

The estuary of Sado is known for the natural habitat of the dolphins (Roazes), especially the resident population, who feed, rest and socialize, over time have enchanted observers and tormented some fishermen.

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.

"Accueil nickel, guide très sympa même si il ne parlait pas français, donc nous n’avons compris que l’essentiel des explications. Sortie en bateau calme, et à peine sortie du port, Bim on aperçoit un banc de dauphins, nous étions à qq mètres d’eux puis par la suite d’autres bancs de dauphins et nous étions vraiment à 1 ou 2 mètres d’eux, l’eau était claire donc on pouvait bien les voir sous l’eau. Nous avons adoré !"

"We were lucky to find we were just a group of 4, me and my 2 teenagers (19/17) and one other person. Pedro guided us well and we had a fantastic afternoon. It's an amazing bit of coastline, there was plenty of adrenaline for my teenagers with the cliff jumps, we all enjoyed the physical challenge of the activity on a day when the sea was quite choppy (it included a mix of swimming, clambering along the rocks, jumping in, a short zip wire) and we loved the boat ride back into the harbour in the early evening light. We'd definitely recommend this."
