Make time to visit these great natural attractions during your trip to Portugal and you won’t be disappointed.
The Ria Formosa Natural Park sits in the eastern Algarve region, and is best described as a lagoon separated from the sea by a series of dunes. It’s popular among birds flying between Europe and Africa, as well as those seeking warmer weather during the European winter. As a result it offers great bird watching.
Portinho da Arrabida is one of the best beaches in Europe, and it’s only a short drive from the capital city of Lisbon. You can also visit the huge Serra da Arrabida, famous for its massive limestone ridge, seen from the city.

Another less-visited natural attraction is Peneda-Geres National Park, the only one in the country, right on the northern border with Spain. It’s a remote space largely untouched by humans, giving it the feel of a real wilderness.
