Be careful because it's always full of people and if you go by car it can be a nightmare to return to Lisbon. Anyways it's worth it because the beaches are amazing!!!

Beautiful beach takes some time to get there from Lisbon, take the boat to Cacihas and then bus 127 or 145 to Fonte da Telha, rent a car or taxi is also possible.

All the area is huge, the beaches are very cozy and decent, with plenty room for your towel, the areas are somewhat secure and the village have everything you need. Good and cheap restaurants. You have several spots to leave your car, some are paid.
