Where is Ponto Final Lisbon located?

Almada, Portugal, on the other side of the Tagus River from Lisbon, is home to the restaurant Ponto Final. 

From Lisbon, you can take a ferry, bus, or car to get to Almada, which is located within the Lisbon Metropolitan Area. Ponto Final is a riverside bar and restaurant in the Almada neighborhood of Cacilhas, with breathtaking views of the Tagus River and the city of Lisbon.

Almada is a city located on the south bank of the Tagus River, across from Lisbon. It is connected to Lisbon via the 25 de Abril Bridge, which is similar in design to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Almada is part of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area and is easily accessible from Lisbon by ferry, bus, or car.

How do I get to the Ponto Final from Lisbon?

Take the ferry from Cais do Sodré to Cacilhas; from there, it is an 11-minute walk. The ferry costs about 2.40 euros round trip. We did go on a Sunday so the ferry wasn’t as frequent as during the week.

I think we waited around 20 minutes. We purchased the tickets at a machine at the ferry place. If you have a Lisbon Card, you can use that too.

You can find the Lisbon Ferry Schedule here.

The journey on the ferry itself is an adventure, with beautiful sights of Lisbon’s skyline and river. You can watch my TikTok recap here.

@fusetravels If you ever look up places to eat in Lisbon on TikTok or hidden gems in Lisbon on TikTok, then you will stumble upon this restaurant, which is across the river in Lisbon called Ponto final We decided to go to this restaurant last minute without a reservation in order to make a reservation at this restaurant you do need to email them and I did email them because it was on a Sunday and they were jampacked. We just decided to go and risk it, so when we finally found the ferry station, the water taxi station we got on the ferry. We waited about 20 minutes for the ferry to arrive and then we cross over. It’s really a short Siri rides and then you walk for about 11 minutes to get to your destination. We did have to wait for about an hour, but it’s totally worth it because of you and the wine in the atmosphere and the food is phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant one visiting Lisbon qt Alamada region . #lisbonhiddengems #lisbonrestaurant #lisbonrestaurants #lisbonrestaurantreview #lisbonfoodguide #lisbonfoodie #lisbonfoodies #lisbonfoodtour #pontofinalalmada ♬ Águas De Março – Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim

Once you arrive on the other side, you leave the Ferry and head to the pier on the right. Then you will walk about 11 minutes to get to Ponto Final. The walk is lovely, full of people and fisherman fishing.

However, I probably would not do this walk at night.

Like any city, Almada has its share of safe and unsafe areas. However, the city is generally considered safe, and it’s unlikely that you will encounter any problems if you stick to the main tourist areas and exercise common sense.

As with any destination, it’s always a good idea to take precautions when traveling at night, such as avoiding poorly lit areas and staying in well-populated areas.

It’s also a good idea to check with your accommodation or local authorities about any areas to avoid.

Our hasty planning meant that they missed our email. We took a chance of not getting a table, so we went there immediately.  We had read they closed during the afternoon, but this is not the case.

We had to wait an hour, and it was packed, but it was well worth it. While we waited, we enjoyed a glass of wine and the serene surroundings. 

Watching the tide change from high to low as we sat on the sand was also entertaining.
