Small overhanging wall ideal for beginners (from 6a-7a) and low tide conditions. High tide conditions will result in routes being half under water! The left and right sides of this wall are easier and less hard on the skin, but the best challenges for more experienced climbers lie on the central part. As far as we know there are no rocks under the climbs, but be aware that the sand moves with waves and storms and, as such, so does the depth (be sure to check it before)!
 

Approach notes

Head towards "Sesimbra" and follow signs to "Porto de Abrigo" (Shelter Harbor). Pass through the harbor and when the asphalt road turns into gravel you can park the car. Facing the ocean, the climbing is on the right of the harbor (+/- 0,5km).
With a boat
After entering the gravel road a small rocky bay it is quite evident (i.e. sector pescas). To go to the sector "Sesimbra dos Pequeninos" by inflatable boat, you may want to go to the right side of the bay (when facing the ocean) and inflate the boat there. Then, it will take you 5-10' to get there. It is just after passing a big prow (i.e. Sector Sesimbra dos Grandes).
Without a boat
After entering the gravel road a small rocky bay it is quite evident (i.e. sector Pescas). To go to the sector "Sesimbra dos Pequeninos" walking, you will have to go to the right side of the bay (when facing the ocean) and walk along the coastline for 10'-15'. It is just after passing a higher cliff (i.e. Sector Sesimbra dos Grandes) but you may want to go further a little more (it is easier to go down). It may not be easy to spot this sector due to the fact that there is no evident path and because it is small. But it is definitely worth the visit! It is like a small DWS playground.
