The Tagus River

The Tagus River is born in Spain and flows into the Atlantic Ocean in the area of Farol do Bugio, the estuary boundary. The “estuary corridor” is about 4 km wide and 40 meters deep. In this channel, the flow velocity can reach 2 m/s (7.2 km per hour). At the end of the channel, next to the sea, the speed is normally greater than 1.5 m/s (5.4 km/h), and can reach 2.5 (9 km/h) in spring tides.


Facing Nature in intense competitions, in an epic scenery that inspires swimmers to reach their limits in the open sea

Since 2012, the LIDL Swim Challenge open water events have taken place at Praia da Ribeira, in the middle of Cascais bay. A fishing village over 650 years old, it was a summer resort for Portuguese and European royalty.

The excellent location, white sand beaches and countless activities for the whole family make this place incomparable.
