Lisbon is a big city, but that doesn't mean you have to go far to sink your toes into the sand. Most tourist overlook the nearest beach area, Caparica, and head northwest. Though I suggest visiting Caiscas and the great beaches to the north, Caparica is 10-15 on public transport. You can't beat it.

A medieval walled village perched 900 metres high on a rocky crag, Marvão is not only one of the loveliest places in Portugal but also a wild life and bird sanctuary where you can find some rare passarine birds. The village walls and turrets are among the best places to see blue rock-thrushes.
