Just before Covid hid the world CNN published a list of the best City Beaches in the world.
We couldn’t help smiling when we saw two of “our” cities topping the list: Our hometown Copenhagen at #1 and our current City Lisbon at #7.
Copenhagen does have the best city beaches, on doubt about that. But it also has the most horrible and unpredictable climate with cold, grey and rainy days most of the year. Completely opposite Lisbon where the climate is mild with more than 300 sunny days pr year or more.
So we will always choose Lisbon to Copenhagen 🙂
If leaving the city seems like a chore, the sensational harbor baths at Islands Brygge and Fisketorvet are a winning alternative. Daredevils can try out the diving boards while fitness fanatics can plow out laps in the clean, cool water.
The railway line from the city center east to Cascais is blessed with vast stretches of sand and turquoise waves.
