    It has been very windy the times where I was there. I had been prior to Lisbon in Barcelona and am pleased therefore, that there is something more space on this beach. In comparison to the beach of Barcelona un acts this essential modern, what to evaluate but not necessarily negative.

    The beach on the Costa de Caparica is actually quite nice.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
