Beach and sports activities in the area can include surfing, body boarding, diving and boat trips. Golfers can also make use of the two championship golf courses Quinta da Marinha and Oitavos.
Why we love it
Families can dip in and out of Lisbon without having to stay in a city that can get pretty hot in the summer months.
