Water Sports:

Surfing, bodyboarding, sailing, windsurfing and all sorts of water sports can be found in beaches like Guincho (that has some of the best conditions for surf and windsurf), Cascais and Costa da Caparica. This last one boasts a 15 kilometre stretch of golden, sandy shoreline.
Also not to be missed are the surrounding areas of Setúbal and Sesimbra. Besides having good conditions for water sports, both these regions offer spectacular scenery and are definitely worth a visit.

Horse Riding:

One of the best ways to explore the natural beauty of Lisbon’s surrounding countryside is on horseback. The magnificent landscape of the Costa do Estoril, particularly the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park, are best appreciated on horseback, providing a truly memorable day out for visitor riders. One of the best places to hire a horse and go riding for a few hours is at the Quinta da Marinha Riding School in Cascais.
