One day tour Portugal south beaches
At first sight this seems a dificult achievement to get to know the Algarve coast in a day trip , from Lisbon. We have done it in a very pleasant way ! Certainly we should leave Lisbon early in the morning for we have about 2, 30 / 3 hours to drive to get to the Algarve coast. Once there we get a fishing boat at the beach that will show you the rock formations and sheltered beaches on the west coast of the Algarve. About 1. 15 hour boat ride with a local who is a fisherman in winter. Afterwards we recommend a fishing lunch overlooking the ocean. Do you know Portugal has some of the best world fish meals ?
Then we return confortably back to Lisbon, if you desire we may take some portions of the coastal road.
Pick up at your end in Lisbon, Cross the bridge 25th April and head south via motorway. Get to the coast of the Algarve in about 3 hours. Take the boat at the beach in the west coast. Boat trip with a local for about 1 hour to the see the cliff formations, caves, sheltered beaches. You may swim or take a bath in the warmer sea of the ALgarve ( depends on the years ). Enjoy being at the beach or have a fish meal. Return to Lisbon via motorway or along the coast where it is possible.
