Sun and Sea
In a city where the sun can shine 290 days per year, it is no surprise that there are so many beaches, swimming pools and parks to visit.
From the urban beaches along the Cascais shore to the multicultural ones in Costa da Caparica, remote and crystal-clear beaches of Arrábida, and mysterious sands of Sintra, there is no lack of seaside areas to enjoy all the health benefits of the sun and sea.
But if sand is not your thing, check out the best public and private pools for a cooling dip when it gets really hot.
Take a trip to the beaches heading west out of Lisbon, along the Linha, for a swim and some sun whenever Lisbon gets too hot for sightseeing.
Visit Lisbon’s most popular beaches, whether in summer or winter, and you’ll find places to suit every taste and temperament along this sun and sand-filled coast.
Explore the most beautiful Atlantic beaches in the region, where you’re as likely to spend the day in beach shorts in the sun as a fleece in the café.
