Lisbon’s new beach

For a couple of years now Lisbon is trying to “reconnect” with the river, the Lisbon’s beach it’s a huge step.

The hot summer days are here and with them the chance to discover the rehabilitated Ribeira das Naus and its new beach.

Located in the Downtown river front, right between the Terreiro do Paço and Cais do Sodré,this  is already one of Lisbon’s most popular sites for walking, cycle ride or just a relaxing break.

This is the city’s first urban beach, although batting is not permitted, on sunny days one can make the most of the two grassy slopes by spreading the towels for a revitalizing sunbathe.

Next summer, Ribeira das Naus will have a new attraction, “Polo Descobrir” is a museum dedicated to the Portuguese Discoveries.

The museum will feature a caravel of about 30 meters in length to show how these ships were built and how they prepared journeys that led Vasco da Gama to India and other mariners on their worldwide discoveries.

Come and visit us, we promise a journey you want forget.
