The "White City" -The Lisbon of Stories and Inspiration


Lisbon is the only European capital located close to a beautiful and sandy shoreline, with several nearby beaches that fly the European Union Blue Flag for excellence.

If you want to relax under the sun, in a few minutes away from city center by train, you reach Estoril Coast, with several beaches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Tagus river estuary, and just across the river you find Costa da Caparica, with dunes, pines trees and white sandy beaches, along with magnificent sea views restaurants, perfect for late afternoon drinks and early dinners.

Less than 30 minutes away from Lisbon, you can explore beaches that offer some of the world’s best waves, hotspots for surfers from all around the globe, including surf mecca Ericeira, recently approved as a World Surfing Reserve – the only in Europe - by the Save The Waves Coalition. 

The average annual temperature of the sea is 17.5°C (63.5°F). During the summer the average sea temperature rises to 20°C (68°F).
