Few locations can match the escapism of this white sand peninsula, south of Lisbon.

Snowflake

A short distance south of the capital Lisbon and yet a world-away from almost anywhere European, the Tróia peninsula is a truly remarkable location. Around 10 miles in length, the peninsula is an oasis of nature and white sands. Dolphins swim the coastal waters and stunning sand bars attract water sports enthusiasts.

At the northern tip is Tróia resort with hotels, a golf course, casino, marina, restaurants and white sand beaches. There are few escapes in Europe to compare with Tróia - it is a staggering natural feature, with upmarket living between the hotels and the marina.

TRÓIA RESORT

Located at the northern tip of the Tróia peninsula, Tróia resort is made up of numerous apartments and a handful of large hotels. Tróia has a wonderful island feeling to it, with the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the narrow peninsula and an estuary / harbour on the other. The northern and western sides of the resort are fringed by wonderful white sand beaches and the eastern side offers nature reserves on the waterfront of the estuary. The resort has an upmarket feel to it, without being stuffy and together with the golf course, the resort offers many green spaces. Tróia marina is a great place to stroll, drink, dine and take boat tours, whilst the Tróia Beach Club offers poolside style on the west coast of the resort.

Located at the start of the Tróia peninsula, some 10 miles from Tróia is the authentic Portuguese town of Comporta. Offering wonderful sandy Atlantic coast beaches to the west of the town and fascinating, delipidated wooden stilted pontoons jutting out in the estuary on the other, the town is very much connected to the waters of the region. To the north of Tróia is the town of Setúbal, the principal town in the locality and connected to Tróia by ferry. Setúbal is a port and remains mostly untouched by international tourism, retaining an authentic feel, with intimate streets, monuments and squares.

TRÓIA DINING

Tróia is a popular holiday resort for the Portuguese and the resort retains a strong regional culinary identity. Burger restaurants exist in Tróia, yet most of the menus across the resort are based around traditional Portuguese dishes. Fish is a mainstay of the diet in the region, whilst meats and baked vegetables are also popular. Tróia marina is a popular place to dine, on the waterfront terraces, whilst the resort hotels offer a range of dining options. The Tróia Beach Club specialises in sushi, in its stylish poolside dining area. 

For a wide range of dining options Setúbal, across the water from Tróia is an ideal option. The ferry across the estuary is a great experience, whilst the town offers numerous restaurants serving very authentic Portuguese food for the local population. As with much of the area, the fishing port of Setúbal influences much of the local cuisine, with fish a staple ingredient in most restaurants.

TRÓIA NIGHTLIFE

One of the most popular and scenic areas of Tróia is the marina, with its waterside bars and restaurants. Sunset at the marina is a wonderful time, as it is at the Tróia Beach Club, where poolside drinks on the western coast at sunset are a real occasion. There are hotel bars in Tróia as well as bars in the centre of the resort.

Setúbal is a working town / port that remains largely untouched by tourism and has many locals’ bars, far removed from the resort feel of Tróia. For those looking for a drinking location at sunset, cruises leave the marina in Tróia to experience the evening skies from the water, with music, nibbles and wine.

TRÓIA MEETINGS & SEMINARS

Tróia has a range of meeting & seminar venues on offer. There are 2 dedicated conferences centres in the resort, one located in the grounds of a resort hotel and the other situated alongside the marina in Tróia. Both venues offer flexible space, registration areas and professional technical and catering services. Alongside these conference venues, Tróia has a number of smaller formal and informal meeting venues including the Tróia Beach Club for poolside, coastal informal gatherings in stylish surroundings.

Setúbal is also an option for clients staying in Tróia and needing meeting or seminar space. Located just across the water from Tróia, the town has a number of meeting venues throughout the town. Setúbal can be reached by ferry from Tróia and offers a very different, very Portuguese feel to the resort of Tróia. The escapism and nature of Tróia make it an enviable location for removing clients from their everyday environments in order to refresh and engage minds.
