I'm visiting Portugal for a week with my GF, flying an out of Lisbon, in February.
What are some must-see or must-do things besides Portugal? We won't be able to rent a car so we'll have to take buses/trains/blablacar or hitchhike. We're open to suggestions but nature/parks/beatiful towns are on the top of our list
I loved the Algarve. Lagos, ponta di pidade, Praia da rocha, fort sagres.. Beautiful environment! Monchique was a nice mountain village near there. We also loved the Santa Bernarda ship, took a day trip on it with swimming, sailing, caves, bbq on the beach... Great stuff!
Pic related is the Santa Bernarda. It leaves from Portimao.
We were there in high summer though. No idea how Feb is.
From Lagos you can also book dolphin watching trips. We loved that!
If you're into history there's an old Moorish fort in Silvas as well.
Great views from Cabo de st. Vicente as well. It's the most Western point of the European mainland. I think. It has a little lighthouse. And just before the lighthouse there's a bratwurst truck ran by actual Germans who advertise with selling the "Letzte Bratwurst vor Amerika" (the last Bratwurst before America).
