Things to do in the Lisbon coast

The towns and villages in the region each have their own history and individual qualities – one of the most enjoyable things to do in the Lisbon Coast is drive from one end to the other, with the sea on one side and stunning fairytale palaces and scenery on the other. Some of Europe's most beautiful architecture is situated along the way, such as the Sao Juliao da Barra Fort or the awe-inspiring Pena Palace.

Portuguese Palaces

Historically the Lisbon Coast was the destination of choice for European aristocracy, and today it's still the playground of the rich and famous, with luxurious mansions nestled amongst the hills. The two most popular destinations are the former fishing village of Cascais and the elegant, glamorous town of Estoril. Both are within easy reach of the busy streets of Lisbon and on the doorstep of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Further north is the fairytale town of Sintra, a great spot for more chilled out Lisbon Coast holidays. The mixture of Moorish and European architecture amid mist-soaked forests gives this town an otherworldly, romantic atmosphere.

Boats, Beaches, Beauty

A holiday to the Lisbon Coast offers everything you could hope for and more. The sun is out in force if you arrive any time between March and October, with temperatures rarely dropping below 20C. The friendly locals give the area a casual yet refined atmosphere, and with regular direct flights from Dublin, you could be topping up your tan in less than three hours.

The proximity of the coast to Portugal's capital means that if – for some reason – you want a change from the sweeping beaches and beautiful valleys, you can always spend a day or two exploring Lisbon's stately architecture and museums, lively bars and nightclubs, and the fashionable shopping districts.

Surfing is a big attraction in the area, as are most other water sports and activities. One way to see the coastline at its best is from the sea itself – hire a boat for a day and spot the rich and famous on their glamorous yachts, or go in search of a hidden cove where you can enjoy some private sun bathing.
