Beach 19, Costa da Caparica

Rua de São Martinho 348, Lisbon, Portugal

Beach 19 at Costa da Caparica, 30km south of Lisbon capital, is one of Europe's biggest gay beaches. Dunes and forest border it. A lot of urban Portuguese come here to swim and mingle as soon as the summer starts.

Directions to Beach 19, Costa De Caparica:

By car: If you're traveling by car, you’ll need to go south to Caparica, and then south again until you reach the last access to the beaches. If the road goes uphill, then you have gone too far. Next, go past Praia do Rei until you reach the parking at the end of the dust road. When you get to Bela Vista, go south. If you take a taxi, it will take about 20 euros.

By train: Go across the Tagus river to the Pragal railway station and take bus 196 to Caparica.

Directions to the gay beach:

To get to the gay beach, take the little train that takes you to all the stops, until you reach Beach 19. The train leaves every half hour, but only until the end of September.
