Arribas Sintra Hotel

Located in Praia Grande, on the sea, in an area of excellence in Sintra. All accommodations are sea view. Restaurant, ocean pool and function rooms.

The West Shores of Sintra & Views of the Atlantic Ocean

The rough west coastline of Sintra represents, according to one of our greatest poets, Luís de Camões, the place where land finishes and sea begins! Having that in mind, we invite you to spend a few hours hiking a trail overlooking the ocean and some of our beautiful beaches – being that some of them are wild and almost not reachable!

You Choose

We offer you two choices within the same tour, which if you are a true hiker and enjoy long hours away from civilization, can easily, be combine into one longer hike!

Praia Grande to Ulgueira

Praia Grande means exactly that, among the small hidden beaches of Sintra, this is probably one of the longest and at its very end has dinosaur’s footprints on the side of the cliff.


- Praia Grande Cliffs
- Dinosaur’s Footprints;
- Praia da Adraga
– Restroom stop;
- Buraco do Fojo and it’s legends;
- Ulgueira
– Beautiful traditional village
- Almoçageme.

Good Ways To Walk

Code of conduct and good practice

We would like to have you as our partner in the preservation of the places and trails we walk through and in order to do that, we need to have into consideration that other than the footprints left behind us, nothing else should be disrespected, vandalized or polluted by our presence there!!

Lets not disturb Nature, leave everything as found!

It is also of great importance to respect and take into consideration all the signs found during our hike or our walk or in any trail we may come across!! And always bring with you everything you need to make your hike a good one!!
