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.
Next are the caves at Mira D’Aire in central Portugal. Most visitors don’t make it here, but that’s even more reason to go. They’re found near Fatima, off the tourist trail but still not too far from either Lisbon or Porto.
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.
Just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., with some of the most beautiful views of the nation’s capital, Alexandria, Virginia, is one of the most endearing small cities in America.

With increased attention comes an ever-exploding culinary scene and, despite its size, Alexandria already overflows with excellent options. These five will give you the best representation of the city’s diverse scene.
