The Lisbon Coast, or the Costa Lisboa, as it is known in Portuguese Language, is the most important area in Portugal. The area starts North of Lisbon and extends along the coast line, and inland up to east of Abrantes. From a tourist point of view, apart from Lisbon, other important towns are Setubal, Mafra, Estoril and Cascais. You may also want to visit Queluz which is a suburban area of Lisbon. It is very well known for its captivating royal palace, which is a smaller version of a similar palace located near Paris in France.
There are many protected beach locations created by natural waterways near river Tagus and there are villas to rent for the tourists in this area. The sandy beaches of Estoril and Cascais are known for friendly swimming conditions and also for being pollution free. The wind surfers, however, prefer to go to two other beaches Guincho and Costa Da Caparica which have earned world wide fame for their high rollers. These beaches are not considered safe for families. You can have fun on the waves and younger family members can watch.
The towns of Sesimbra and Setubal are located right in the south of Lisbon. Sesimbra used to be only a small fishing village before tourists discovered the place and now the place abounds with holiday rentals. Setubal, on the other hand is second largest port in the country and attracts the tourists with its natural blue shallow sea. The region is full of fruit, wine and horticultural products and these are mainly grown in flat areas having good mineral soil. The region has very good irrigation facilities. The region is also known for its marbles, granite and other industrial items.
