I think the most wonderful part of my trip to Portugal was definitely the beautiful beaches that I got to experience. In Barcelona where the beaches are all manmade you lose the feeling that coming from real fine sand and the beauty of the coastline. My lovely friend, and Lisbon native, was able to take us to a few of her favorite spots throughout my time there. Many of which were hidden off the beaten path and accessible only by foot. Here are just a few shots of the two beaches that we visited on my last day:
And what beach day is complete without a delicious seafood meal. We went to a local restaurant where you select the fresh fish and seafood that you want to eat at the bar before sitting down. You know you’re going to get the best quality. We had an amazing meal, my favorite of which was these clams.
We finished it up with tiramisu and almond cake. Yum yum! The perfect end to a short trip. I could not have wished for a better time in Portugal with better weather!
