Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is one of Europe’s most vibrant and charismatic cities. One thing visitors love about Lisbon is the weather. The sun shines more than 280 days a year and the temperatures barely drop below 60 degrees: making it perfect weather for beach lovers.

 

If you’re planning a trip to the beach in Lisbon, here’s a list of some of the best beaches this city has to offer:

 

Carcavelos Beach

Carcavelos is one of the largest beaches in Lisbon and the most popular. Tourists prefer this beach because its easy access using public transportation. You will find tons of bars, cafes, and of course, beach volleyball.

Ursa Beach

Looking for something even more secluded? Then head to Ursa Beach. The beach, located just north of Cabo da Roca, is a hidden gem. Keep in mind that a walk on this beach, while beautiful, is quite steep.

Meco Beach

If you’re comfortable with your body, then consider Meco Beach. This beach is known as a nudist beach, and is popular among local and international visitors.

The last thing to remember is that beaches in Lisbon can be divided into four main regions: The Estoril-Cascais Coastline, The Serra de Sintra Coastline, The Costa de Caparica Coastline, and The Serra da Arrábida Coastline.
