Berlengas is a small group of islands off the coast of Portugal just north of Lisbon, an hour by car. The boat ride is another 45 minutes over some seriously rolling seas. Once there, it is a beautiful red rock sanctuary for birds with a small marina and beach and an amazing fort that has helped Portugal fight off pirates for centuries. Definitely worth the time if you are looking for a day trip outside of Portugal or something less crowded than Sintra. You can even stay in the fort in very bare bare bones hostel like accommodations if you want to and plan ahead.
