Is there anything more perfect than an ocean sunset? In Lisbon, #localsknow the best way to close out the day is to get outside and watch the sun sink into the Atlantic. With so many stretches of sandy beach within the city limits, it’s no wonder locals are regularly heading out to the coast — on holidays, weekends, after work, any time they can! — just to see the pretty sea.
And while there are plenty of things to see and do in Lisbon, sometimes you just need to get away from urban life — especially when you’ve got Europe’s longest sandy shoreline calling to you!
Just south of the city is Costa da Caparica, a popular resort town that booms with locals escaping the city during the warm summer months. There’s 30 kilometres of beach, just perfect for soaking up those rays, and all along the coast are funky bars and late-night beach parties to keep you going long after the sun sets!
