The Sintra coast, only half an hour from Lisbon by car, is the ideal place for love birds. Set amid great natural beauty and sheltered by rocky coves, this area is home to some amazing beaches. Praia da Ursa, Praia das Azenhas do Mar and Praia do Magoito are three of the best.
Take a ride on the tram that links Sintra to Praia das Maçãs. Stop for lunch in the restaurant at Praia da Adraga, where you can sample the freshest seafood imaginable.
In the evening spend some time discovering the small towns and fishing villages in the surrounding area, strolling along their narrow streets and meeting the locals.
Take advantage of the fact that you’re close to Sintra, the quintessential romantic destination, to enjoy a romantic ride through the town’s historic centre in a horse-drawn carriage, or walk through the stunning gardens of Monserrate and the park of Palácio da Pena.
