We would be grateful to hear from anyone who could suggest a good location and possibly hotel (3 star +) that is on the coast near enough to Lisbon so that we can visit on a day trip.
This is our first taste of Portugal and would like to take in some sites near Lisbon and hopefully some stunning scenery. Would prefer a coastal hotel if possible. We're thinking of hiring a car but could public transport take us into the centre of Lisbon?
We're not looking for major nightlife just access to shops, restaurants etc. We will be visiting at the end of October.
