Quick business trip to Lisbon--any recs for quick sidetrips

I have a quick 3-day business trip to Lisbon in mid-September (Mon-Wed). Planning on flying in a few days early and leaving a few days later with DH joining me. Any recs for a recommended side-trip on each side of the business trip to see a variety of the country without a lot of additional travel, etc. Beaches, wine, and/or spa would be preferrable.

Thanks!

Definitely Sintra. You like the beach so perhaps Cascais and its fantastic Guincho Beach would be nice.
See www.golisbon.com for more information on Sintra and Cascais.

Another suggestion for Sintra - very close to Lisbon and very easy to reach by train. Plus it's beautiful...

photos are in my trip report entitled "Portugal Trip Report" found by clicking on my screen name.

Thanks for the recommendations. But I can't find any accomodations here for 12-16 September. Does anyone know what's going on at that time? Just high season?

Thanks!
