Full description

Discover the wonders of the Sesimbra in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park on this guided trip. Explore the water by kayak and stop at the Ribeiro do Cavalo Beach for a picnic and some relaxation in the sun.

Choose between pickup from Lisbon or meeting directly in the ancient village of Sesimbra (about a 45-minute drive from Lisbon). Once in Sesimbra, hop in a kayak to go into the ocean. Sesimbra is located in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park and has the most beautiful landscape in the region, filled with limestone cliffs, grouts, passages in between rock formations, and a beach to enjoy a break and soak in the sun. The first leg on the Kayak from the starting point is about 1.5-hours of paddling until you reach Ribeiro do Cavalo Beach. Enjoy a picnic break where you can admire the landscape in a relaxed way. Options are available if you have food allergies or other restrictions (a message will be sent with extra info about the food and with extra info before the start of the trip). The second leg on the kayaks will bring you back to the starting point. The journey in general is a bit faster as you'll have some wind helping you on the return route. If you chose pickup, get driven back to Lisbon for drop-off.

Highly recommend!! Such a fun and beautiful day. Pickup was right next to my hostel and very easy to find. The guide was fantastic and local. Such a great experience. Made everyone feel so comfortable. Even if you have never kayaked before, you need to do this. The guide will help and teach you. 10/10! I really enjoyed this experience so much.

The guides were charming and very easy to spend an afternoon with. They were kind to all of the guests, regardless of ability or experience. They were very informative about the surroundings and local history. They provided a relaxed atmosphere that was clearly meant to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves and made good memories. It was an excellent afternoon!

I did the kayaking experience with 6 other friends. The guide Rui was very helpful. One of our friends knew she would get tired while kayaking and Rui paired up with her. He didn't mind doing all the work. We went through rock formations and a cave, and stopped by a beach to eat. Rui also does other custom hike + kayaking tours which we would have loved to do. He was fluent in English and happy to answer all our questions on Arrabida and Portugal as a whole.
