Wide, sandy beach close to lisbon city centre. You can reach Carcavelos beach by tram, heading from Cais do Sodre station. Journey takes around 20 min and it’s comfortable. You can find a lot of restaurants and bars close to the beach. Must see!!!:)

Early in the morning the tide is leaving so you have small bays of water and have little ones(kids from camping schools in big groups) It’s adorable as it’s hundreds of little minions. Then before 12pm you have surfing classes for kids. Some are body...More

The beach is huge and very nice. It might not be the nicest town around, but the beach is awesome. Although there is a lot of people it seems empty. A lot of nice restaurants and bars along the path in back of the beach...More

Was very crowded..our family of 4 couldn't get 4 towels together and we were there by 11am. Moved north up the beach after a while, up near where the volleyball courts were set-up....could finally lay out together.

Great beach with white sand and nice bars but could be very busy on hot sunny days! Traffic at busy time is horrible!

Large beach easily accessible from Lisbon city centre - take the train from Cais do Sodre for only € 1,95 one way. The beach is a ten minute walk from the Carcavelos train station. Very large with a lot of restaurants.
