Drive from Lisbon to Porches

Hi there,

My husband and I will be honeymooning in June and driving from Lisbon to the Alagrve. The plan is to spend 2 nights in Porches just to relax on the beach (likely at Vilalara Thalassa) and then spend two nights in Lagos (Carvi Beach).

We are leaving Lisbon on Saturday June 23, and want to stop along the way to Porches. Can we stop at Evora and Sagres or does that not make sense - also any suggestions for breakfast or lunch!?

Also is Taveira worth a look before we go to Lagos ( i know its the other way but I really want to relax on a beach!).

TIA

Neither is on any direct route and Sagres is in fact further west from Porches than Lagos which you plan to stay at.

Évora is about 90 minutes drive only from Lisbon but after that there isn't much to look at heading down the highway until you get to the Algarve.

Do the detour to Évora, you'll have more than enough time in the Algarve for relax and visit Sagres when in Lagos.
