My first trips to Portugal were actually to the island of Madeira. Portugal has a lot to offer a digital nomad like me who’s looking for a one-of-a-kind and inspiring place to work and explore. It’s a great place to stay connected and get work done, with excellent internet infrastructure and a growing number of co-working spaces.
Lisbon, Portugal’s capital and largest city, is an especially appealing destination for digital nomads. Lisbon is well-known for its charming streets, historic sites, and delectable cuisine. The city has several excellent co-working spaces and a thriving startup scene, making it an ideal location for networking and meeting like-minded people. Visitors can explore the historic Alfama neighborhood, known for its winding streets and the famous St. George Castle, or take a stroll along the Cais do Sodre riverfront area and enjoy the nightlife.
Madeira Island is another excellent destination for digital nomads in Portugal. Madeira, known as the “floating garden of the Atlantic,” is a popular outdoor destination due to its rugged landscapes, lush vegetation, and beautiful beaches. The island also has some excellent co-working spaces, as well as several excellent restaurants and cafes. Visitors can hike the well-known Levada trails or take a cable car to the top of Pico do Arieiro to take in the breathtaking views.
Finally, Portugal is an excellent choice for digital nomads looking for a unique and inspiring location to work and explore. It’s a great place to stay connected and get work done, with excellent internet infrastructure and a growing number of co-working spaces, as well as a mix of culture, history, and natural beauty. Portugal has something for everyone, whether you want to explore the charming streets of Lisbon or relax on the beautiful beaches of Madeira.
