Seafood or Fish Lunch at beach with Fishing Village and Beach Tour

The Portuguese, Seafood and Fish tour is the best of the best! It includes a 6-hour tour departing from your hotel at 9.30am and returning at 3.30pm.

Travel in a new air-conditioned minivan taking in the sea views and enjoy lunch at one of the best fresh seafood and fish restaurants on the beach, either at Sesimbra or Ericeira (40Km from Lisbon). The destination will depend on the weather forecast, traffic, or guest preference.

Stop for coffee or tea, and try some of the famous cupcakes (Pasteis de Terrugem or Tortas de Azeitão or Pasteis de Mafra).

Despite being relatively restricted to an Atlantic sustenance, Portuguese cuisine has many Mediterranean influences and is famous for its seafood.

Try the caldeirada (fish stew) or the many varieties of seafood and be sure to leave room for the superb desserts.

Our beach lunch includes fresh seafood and other specialist dishes like steak, barbecued chicken, meals for kids and much more. Also included are coffee, water, soft drinks, juices, wine, green-wine and draft beer.

We will arrive at the restaurant at 12:30 pm and we will have enough time to rest, enjoy lunch and the view.

Arriving Sesimbra: Sesimbra is a village that the famous author Camões called "beautifully fishy. Rich in natural and cultural heritage, you´ll get to know about its history going back to medieval times, while walking through its narrow streets, impressive monuments, and emblematic buildings. Visit the City Square; Holly Spirit Chapel; Santiago's Church; Bishop's House and Santiago's Fort.

Arriving Ericeira: Considered one of Europe’s best  ‘small destinations’, Ericeira is a quite ancient town, believed to be connected with the Phoenicians. The sea has always played an essential role for the village and it was a very important port during the 19th century. This is the place where the Portuguese royal family escaped to their exile after the 1908 regicide. Ericeira is a popular beach destination, known for its natural beauty, welcoming atmosphere and delicious seafood. Visit the Palace of Mafra that is a monumental Baroque and Italianized Neoclassical palace-monastery. Construction began in 1717 and was completely concluded in 1755. The palace was classified as a National Monument in 1910 and was also one of the finalists of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.

We will depart from the restaurant at 2:45 pm and the estimated arrival at your hotel will be at 3:30 pm (end of the tour)

Unbelievable day out. I love cooking seafood at home, but the quality just isn't the same. I ate so much of their fresh fish and I would recommend the salted sea bass - it was to die for! I even bought some dried herbs and spices to take back home and try to replicate. It was a brilliantly relaxed day, too often tours are rushed and impersonal, and whenever I spend money on a tour like this I worry that I will be rushed into shops with people pressuring you to buy things. There was none of that on this tour, they all really enjoy what they are doing and it's obvious. I would really recommend this tour for its' professionalism and attention to detail

Sesimbra is just gorgeous. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a beautiful beach, nice scenery and great restaurants & food in a relaxed, less-touristy spot than Algarve or Cascais (though it looks like they are developing more hotels and resorts, so this place will probably be more touristy in the future, especially in the Summer). The fine golden sandy beaches are cleaned daily and are sheltered from high currents, a lovely place to soak up the sun and swim in the clear blue sea. The food was perfect, fantastic seafood - I ate the calamari and lobster and it was to die for. In this area of Portugal everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I can't rate this highly enough
