Travel theme: Beaches

Beaches…I don’t have to go far for them, Lisbon has wonderful beaches just 15 minutes away! It is wonderful to live in a city where one has the feeling of being on holidays ever day.
Today I will dedicate this theme to my favorite coast line that goes from Comporta, some 100kms south of Lisbon (Alentejo Coast) to Óbidos, some 140 kms north of Lisbon (East Coast), Portugal. Dramatic cliffs, kilometers long sandy beaches, sand dunes and cluster of fisher villages are the trade mark of these two regions.

  2. There are some terrific photos here. No. 2,5 and 10 are my favourites. The one with all those people walking into nothing is fabulous.

    • thanks! Pic 10 was taken at 8:30 in the morning with the cool morning mist still hanging over the skyline. This beach is some 8kms long with not a soul to speck it. Was an awesome day trek.

  5. Hello! Don’t think our paths have crossed before but these are just the kind of beaches I love. I’ve seen those flowers on the beach on Tavira Island. Sao Juliao looks gorgeous. I was in Obidos 2 years ago but didn’t make it to the beach. (it was a grey day anyway, but I was on my way to Tomar for the Festa dos Tabuleiros) It’s a beautiful country. :)
