The Alentejo, Portugal, is less than 1 hour from Lisbon Airport. The Alentejo has a mild winter climate, open sandy beaches, vast rolling plains, great local cuisine and excellent wines.
The Coast offers up wildly beautiful beaches. Nestling between bluff and stretching out to form vast expanses of sand that are perfect for long walks, these beaches are the ideal place for enjoying complete rest and relaxation. Cyclists can traverse the beach trails, stopping in at little fishing villages and working their way toward a rest under the sea cliffs or the umbrella-like pine trees that shelter some parts of the Alentejo’s coast. While crossing the Alentejo, you might pedal or hike past a grove of olive trees or a field of sunflowers. You might find shade within one of the many cork forests
