Portugal boasts plenty of coastline and there is a stretch of sand to suit everyone.


One of the best sunset beaches in the country is Praia da Adraga, near Lisbon. It’s the most westerly beach in mainland Europe and it’s popular among surfers. Head to the Azenhas do Mar restaurant for a sundowner to get the full experience.


Up near Porto is Miramar beach, which offers huge expanses of sand as well as a small white chapel. It’s only seven miles from the city, so you can easily get there in a day.


Praia de Mira in Figueira da Foz is a popular spot thanks to its privileged location between the sea and a lagoon. There are lots of cafés for eating and drinking, pine trails through the nearby forest for biking, and paddleboats for hire. You can also book a table at one of the sophisticated restaurants if you are in the market for a treat meal.


You’ll have to take a catamaran to reach it, but the Troia peninsula near Setubal is well worth the effort. There are 18 kilometers of beaches to explore in the area as well as regular boat trips to see local dolphins.
