Nearby there are also golf courses and there are some big ones open all year at Estoril and Sintra which are close by towns. If you prefer more natural activity then the Sintra Cascais Natural Park is great for exploring on foot, horse or bike.
Sinta also offers an interesting history as it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and therefore has many interesting buildings to look at including Pena Palace and the National Palace.
