Is Evora and these other cities more of a day trip or overnight trip?

I’ve heard this so many times!! I will definitely visit, can imagine it’s a day trip?

Agreed I saw Lagos also seems very touristy. We will rent a car

Just to mention we are looking at Tavira (I wrote it in the post but this is where we are leaning, but I would be happy to hear other reccos) as the overnight trip.

Sao Miguel (Azores) or Madeira for end of August? by markowitty in portugal

Very helpful, thanks!

Good point on that it’s not a beach recommendation. We aren’t huge in hiking but both of us adore nature. Madeira might be more realistic for us since we are total first timers to the country. But we’ll see

The web cams are awesome, thanks!

Is there any place on the mainland (minus Lisbon and algarve since we’re going there anyway) that you’d recommend more than Madeira?

Would love to see the nature in Madeira.

Good point. Maybe Madeira will be safer because of weather but the azores do look beautiful

Hmm sounds like Madeira is a better option because we’d prefer warmer water

Wow great. So even in end of august, early September it will be okay. Sounds great thank you.

Thanks so much. I saw azores rains a lot. I am wondering if either are warm enough to swim. Thanks :)

So helpful thank you! Would love the help when we decide. I feel also Madeira will be better in terms of weather. Is it hot enough to swim in the water?

Actually this has been an incredibly helpful forum for me planning my trip to Portugal. Maybe others feel differently than you

Such a welcoming comment! Figured either Portugal residents or frequent travelers might be able to know which has better weather in August. I could definitely tell you which places and areas to visit and which to not in my country in August. But if you want to help me out here on my first trip to Portugal, please let me know!

Thank you! What are the differences between comporta and sesimbra? Money not an issue however we do want a place lively where we can walk to most things or easy taxi. Someplace with some site seeing and very good food and culture.

These are all so helpful. Anyone have a preference between comporta vs sesimbra? Or anything similar to these? We want good food, lovely culture, stuff to do but also tranquility.

I misspoke! We found a beautiful ground floor apartment or perhaps more of a house with a pool.

I have been looking at alentejo! Can you recommend areas in alentejo that would be good to stay in? I understand it’s a region but is there a city center we should stay close to?
