Algés is an outer borough of Lisbon. The area is not renowned for its natural beauty, but this is made up for by its access to some of the most beautiful areas of Central Portugal. A short train journey will take you straight to Carcavelos where you can spend a day surfing and tanning on the beach.
Alternatively, hop on a bus to Costa da Caparica - a popular destination with local surfers and tourists alike. Algés also has great connections to Lisbon, which makes it appealing for digital nomads struggling to find affordable accommodation in the centre. Just 10 minutes by train to the centre of Lisbon.
