Lisboa and its surroundings

Add some Nature, Culture, and Gastronomy to your stay in Lisbon!

Your stay in Lisbon is going to be everything but boring! If you want to add any extra ingredient to your stay, Lisbon and its surroundings are a giant market with a lot to offer! And Oasis Backpackers Hostel Lisbon is just in the bustling heart of the city, in one of the most famous and traditional neighborhoods – Bairro Alto. So be adventurous, step out to the cobbled streets of Lisbon and get ready to be surprised. From the city’s cultural diversity to the amazing architectural heritage and hectic nightlife, Lisbon allows you to fill in the 24 hours of your day. Known as the city of seven hills, make sure you make time to go to the higher viewpoints, such as the São Jorge’s Castle, and get amazed by the panoramic views of the city, perfectly embraced by the majestic Tagus River.

Enjoy the best Pastel de Nata in town

For some extra motivation, ask us where you can try the best Pastel de Nata in town, our world-famous pastry. And make sure you make some extra room in your suitcase for some boxes, you won’t want to keep this secret just for yourself. pastel-de-nata-custard-tart-lisbon

Alfama and Mouraria

The old and traditional neighborhoods, Alfama and Mouraria, introduce you to the real Portuguese lifestyle back in the days, with narrow streets and clothes drying out of people’s’ windows. Make sure you try typical Portuguese cuisine in these neighborhoods, combined with a Fado performance. And even if you’re not a Portuguese speaker, the vibrant emotion that the song carries will touch your heart. alfama-lisbon

Add a perfect end to your day by connecting with locals in the city’s most crowded night spot – Bairro Alto. That is right, it is just a few steps away from the hostel and you don’t need to worry about transportation. Just stay as late as you want!

Visit Cascais

Even though Lisbon has enough to entertain you for a whole month, you should not miss the opportunity of visiting some cool towns just 30 minutes away. That’s right, we are talking about Cascais and Sintra. lighthouse-cascais You can choose from taking the train in Cais do Sodré station or to get a hop on hop off tour, and you’ll be driven along the seaside, where the Tagus River meets the Atlantic Ocean, on a nice and relaxing ride until the Cascais town. An old fisherman’s village that is nowadays known as the Portuguese Riviera. Get lost in this picturesque town, where the seagulls stand tall majestically on the bay and the white sanded beaches seem endless. Other of Cascais highlights is Boca do Inferno, which means the “mouth of hell”. It is quite close to the town center, so you can easily walk there or rent one of the various bikes available throughout the town, to go and see this amazing rock caves sculpted by the crashing waves that seem that it is going to swallow you!

Your camera will not get tired of this town, so make sure it is fully charged!

Go to Sintra

Continuing the ride along the seaside, let’s go a little bit higher and aim to the Sintra mountains. On the way, you’ll pass by one of the most famous spots for surfing in Portugal, Guincho Beach, where the waters are full of boards and the skies full of kites. From there, you can spot the most western point of Portugal, therefore of the European Continent – Cabo da Roca – “where the land is over and the sea begins”, as written by our epic poet Luis de Camões, the red lighthouse proudly marks the spot. Stop by and feel the grandiosity of this unique place on earth. sintra-portugal As you start entering the Sintra area, you’ll find hard to believe that you are just a few minutes away from Lisbon, as you suddenly feel like being part of a fairy tale. Surrounded by forest, Sintra is so green that you feel rejuvenated. In every corner you can find a castle, a palace, a fountain, perfectly landscaped gardens, you name it! It is mysterious, romantic and with a lot of mysticism. The stories and myths involving this town are countless. And make sure you don’t leave with an empty stomach.

Try the regional pastries, Travesseiros and Queijadas!

Try surfing on the Atlantic coast near Sintra

If you have always wanted to surf in Portugal, take this opportunity and learn on one of the most famous beaches around the Sintra and Cascais coast. Imagine spending some days with friends in the middle of a calm natural environment next to the Atlantic ocean.

With various accommodation types available, at Aldeia da Praia, part of Oasis Backpackers vibe, you will step into a comfortable thick mattress, with fresh & crispy linen and nordic duvets, to later dive away into a well-deserved sleep. Before that, you must try on-site some local fish and a glass of local red wine. Your holidays will be starting just right.

So, as you can see, you won’t get bored at all! Visit us!
