Help with where to stay in Portugal

We are a young couple looking to go to Portugal for a last minute break at the end of May. I am not a fan of the resorts and package holidays but I would like a beach town with lots of things to do and see without needing a car. I love Nice in France as it has great public transport, a beach and a lovely city. I have been looking at Lagos as an option but also thinking about Lisbon and Porto? Do they have good beaches that are easily accessible? Is there anywhere else I should look? Thanks in advance!

I love Nice in France - then go to Cascais. Very close to Lisbon.

Have a look at Praia de Âncora.

Lovely town right by the sea. Good train service for visiting neighbouring towns such as Viana do Castelo, Caminha and Valença. It's an easy trip by train from Porto.

We are heading out this way in July. Can't wait !
