Praia de Troia Things to Do

    Tróia’s beaches are the reason why everybody goes there. 18 km of white sand beaches and clear clean water.

    For me the best part of Troia’s beaches is the sea side. It’s the cleanest and the most beautiful since the only thing you see is sea, sand and Arrabida.

    Only in July and August will you find it more crowded but only at weekends.

    To get there:

    If arriving by boat just go to the sea side. You may have to walk a bit but it's worth it.

    If you have a car you can go a bit further, to Sol Tróia (near ferry port ). It has a more "lonely" beach. To get there you have to go through the residential area and pay for parking.

    Tróia also has some History to offer. Near to the center of Tróia you will find Roman Ruins. These ruins were one of the main roman centers of fish salting workshops. It also has a bath complex, a mausoleum and necropolis.

    For guided tours you have to make a reservation. Once again troiaresort clients have discount.

    Adults normal ticket: 5€
    Troiaresort client: 4€
    Adults guided ticket: 7.50€
    Troiaresort client: 5€

    A "Break" full of experiences
    Live the emotions of a regatta. Sail up Sado River in a traditional vessel for a cocktail in Alcácer do Sal Castle. One unforgettable weekend.

    Ice Gourmet is a little restaurant right in front of Tróia's catamaran port. It serves light meals such as sandwiches and salads. It isn’t overpriced as some other places in Tróia and their food has quite a good quality.

    They also have one of the best ice creams I have ever tasted in Portugal (it’s worth to go there just to eat them). They don’t have an huge variety but have the traditional flavors and some very unusual, it depends on the day.

    The last time I went there, they had a “promotion”. If you spend 10€ or more in there you get a rechargeable catamaran/ferry card with a free trip in it.

    Favorite Dish: Chocolate or raspberry ice cream

    From Setubal’s ports there are ferries (people and cars) and catamarans (only people) leaving and arriving every hour or half an hour to and from Tróia.

    The price per adult is 2.75 (one-way) or 5.50 (round-trip).

    They leave from different points and arrive to different ports also. They localization of each
    departure and arrival is very clear in this site http://www.atlanticferries.pt/

    They now have a new policy and you have to buy a rechargeable card where you’ll have the trip tickets (each card is 0.50) so make sure if you want to return there you don’t lose it.

    Ferry
