What to do ?

The “Riviera Portuguesa”, could be described as the strategic location between the:
-Cosmopolitan city of Lisbon that brings us one of the hardest word in Portuguese to translate “Saudade” a word that derives from the melancholy of the boardwalks on the typical 1000 year old streets and alleys or, just by watching the ancient trolleys pass by,

The romantic and awarded Sintra, a rich Townsville filled with ancient villas, palaces and enchanted forests,

– Close to the Oeiras marina, where you can sail away on a boat trip, go jogging on the boardwalk from the long Carcavelos beach, or just inhale the invigorating sea breeze, and surf

– Or discover the Estoril coast by car, bike or just go for a walk since S. Pedro Estoril till Cascais or Guincho, a windsurfer’s paradise spot, you can also play Padel and Tennis or visit the most unique and passionate wine producers in the country.

We can only suggest some options that allow you to discover some of the region potential, discover it by the sea, land or air, variety shows no limits.
