Sesimbra is a municipality of Portugal, in the Setúbal District, lying at the foothills of the Serra da Arrábida, a mountain range between Setúbal and Sesimbra. Due to its particular position at the Setúbal Bay, near the mouth of the Sado River and its natural harbour, it is an important fishing town.

Besides professional fishing and sport fishing (mainly of swordfish), the most significant revenues in Sesimbra come from tourism. The town is known for its beaches, fish restaurants and nightlife.

Open Water Swimming[edit]

SwimTogether, led by André Santos, offers a fully escorted small group swim among its one-day swimming tours in Sesimbra called the Sesimbra Beach and Cave Tour.
