Quinta da Regaleira

Quinta da Regaleira is one of the best Attractions in Portugal. This place needs at least 4 hours to go through the whole thing. Make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes because there is a lot of walking and uphill’s there in your way. Visited in July and it is a perfect season for your trip to Sintra.

Ponte de Dom Luis I

Ponte de Dom Luis I is a very beautiful bridge that was constructed by the same person who constructed Eiffel Tower. If you walk along the bridge, you can get the beautiful view of Douro valley and Porto city. It’s a stunning place, especially from the top. The views from both sides are just amazing and definitely worth a look and a visit. The lower level is transited by cars, while the upper one by the metro. The best thing to do is waiting for the sunset and sees fantastic view from the top of the bridge.

Falesia Beach

Falesia Beach is a wide and long (approximately 10km) sandy beach that sits directly below beautiful white and ochre cliffs with high pine trees, and that is perfect for taking long walks (you can even take a 1hr long walk to the next town on Vilamoura). The water is clear and free of stones or rocks, and the beach is well serviced. The cliff tops have regular clusters of conifers which add another dimension and another color, leaving only the blues of the sea and the sky to complete the range of colors.
