If you have always dreamed of riding a horse on the beach, Cavalos na Areia (Portuguese for “horses in the sand”), is the destination of choice. Located a mere hour away from Lisbon. Beginning in the forest, riders will experience the trails opening up, the change in the horse’s step, as they travel into the wide open beaches. Cantering across the beach, feel the careful, soft movement of the horse’s beat, as you ride. And the best part is, these rides start from just $74!

At Ranch de Diabat the passion for horses has been passed on through generations, making it an authentic equestrian ranch. Riders will get to ride along the Atlantic shores on Barb-Arabian horses.

Ranch de Diabat offers a variety of packages to accommodate all kinds of riders, starting from $158.

3. Ride through the Tunisian Beaches on Horseback:
