Luxury Lisbon Coast Holidays

Wide, golden beaches in easy reach of Lisbon

Lisbon Coast

Home of Portugal’s cosmopolitan capital city, Lisbon Coast holidays offer beautiful beaches, lots of culture and opportunities to relax. The area is ideal for foodies with its family run tavernas and some of Portugal’s top restaurants. Choose from succulent steaks and locally sourced fruit and vegetables from the surrounding farmlands, as well as freshly caught seafood. Afterwards, relax in a bar over a cool beer, local or international fine wines and champagne.

Couples and families alike will find something for them on a holiday to Lisbon Coast. Long stretches of sand are backed by lively restaurants while little coves allow you to relax and enjoy a beach all to yourself. Pack a picnic and explore for the day or try a range of water sports and activities, from pedalo rides and glass bottom board to sailing and wind surfing. Culture lovers will also find churches, monuments and more to explore.

Book luxury holidays in Lisbon Coast and stay in Estoril which is the pretty town Ian Fleming used as inspiration for many of the James Bond novels. The whitewashed town and cobbled streets will take you back in time, while the upmarket marina is the perfect place to window shop for your yacht. For some lively action visit the town’s casinos, watch the sunset over a glass of fine wine or watch the cars on the Grand Prix track.

Lisbon itself is a beautiful, historical city, easily accessible on foot, by tram or a hop on/off bus tour. There are so many fascinating sights to take in, such as the historic monasteries and the maritime museum. Why not climb to the top of the watch tower to relive the excitement of watching the ships coming in - at one time they would have been bringing treasures from the 'new world'.
