So I'm planning a cheeky 9 day dash down to the Portuguese coast primarily for a surf. However I think it would be a bit of a bugger to travel all the way to this beautiful country and not set aside some time to at least experience Lisbon and Porto. I was wondering if anyone had any idea on whether there is good accessibility to surf beaches in both cities so that I can surf mornings and arvo's, and explore during the day/evenings. I'm not the pickiest surfer in the world, so I'm not expecting world class beaches on the door step of these cities, but some recommendation on where to stay and what neighbourhoods to look out for good access to a surfable beach and also public transport for city sites/nightlife would be fantastic.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
