Wine Cruise in the Costa Azul

Every Saturday until the 27th of September, visitors to the Setúbal Peninsula can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Sado Estuary with local wine and food on board.
Costing 25 euros for adults and 15 euros for kids, this leisurely showcase of the Costa Azul region's delicacies departs from Setúbal at 6.30pm and Tróia at 6.45pm, lasting for two and a half hours as the shimmering sun sets over the Atlantic.
Known as the Wine Sunset Party, each cruise features the wines of a different estate, accompanied by locally-produced Azeitão cheese, smoked sausage, oven-baked bread and various other specialities of the region.
The lesser known Costa Azul region south of Lisbon is a peaceful haven of quaint fishing villages and sandy coves. Sesimbra, with its calm, sheltered bay, is a popular holiday resort for Lisboetas, while the busy fishing port of Setúbal is well known for its high quality fish restaurants.
The cruise passes the great limestone ridge of the Serra da Arrábida, home to the world’s oldest living examples of Mediterranean vegetation set within the protected boundary of the Arrábida Natural Park, an area unique for its unusual soil and microclimate, both rare in this part of Europe. More than 1,000 species of plant have been recorded there.
The Sado Estuary is also home to a family of bottlenose dolphins whose charcoal-grey dorsal fins can often be seen scything the water's surface.
