A coastal town just 20 miles west of Lisbon, Cascais was once a small fishing village, but its idyllic scenery attracted the attention of artists, writers and expelled European nobility in the 20th century. Today, it still attracts high society, but all society comes in force to enjoy the gorgeous beaches and adventure options like sailing and surfing. The Conde de Castro Guimarães Museum, a former palace, is now open to the public and displays an impressive collection of art and artifacts.

Sometimes in order to find something interesting you should get lost. Probably that's exactly how the park was discovered. I didn't expect it to be so nice and charming. Really worth visiting. Relaxing zones, peacocks running to and back, flowers, big trees everything makes this place a special one for me.

Easy place to get too.Airport bus no 1 to Caise de Sodre, then local train to Cascais.Great place to base yourself to visit Sintra and Lisbon.
The local bus station is situated below the shopping centre next to the train station, with a large selection of services. Also there is the Bursuras bus which leaves the train station on a circular route around the town
A large choice of food from MacDonalds up to five star dining, best value are the local Portugese joints outside the centre, great value and cheap.
Lots of bars around the centre, but try a local bodega and Ginja. Visit the Boca de Inferno and along from there visit the Mar de Inferno an outstanding fish restaurant next to the sea.
A great place to enjoy a great coast.

Guincho can be an amazing beach, Winter or Summer as long as there is no wind! The water temperature is very cold but if you happen to be there on a beautiful day in July, it can be very refreshing! The Winter months are good to take your dog and/or children to run and play as you almost have the beach to yourself!

This house is opposite Casa De Santa Maria. It's another little gem and we spent a very pleasant couple of hours looking around. The decor is beautiful and very much as it was in it's day.

Lovely town with easy access to both Lisbon and Sintra by public transportation. Town itself has a great downtown with super restaurants and ocean walks and Beaches and several museums. I must admit however, March was much cooler and rainier than we expected (everyone kept telling us this year was not normal), so I would probably change my timing to visit Cascais at a different time of the year. Probably May or September would be ideal, better weather and avoiding the summer time peak!

Cascais is a busy resort with several small Beaches. Travel there by train from Cais Sodre - buy your return ticket the night before as the queues at the ticket machine are very long and take at least an hour. There is usually only one person at the ticket booth, so long queue there as well.
Sun loungers at the beach cost 20 euro for a double.

We stopped here as part of our tour. The weather was blustery and wet so the waves pummelling the rocks were spectacular and we got some great photos. The scenery is very beautiful and on a calm day it is relaxing to walk along the seafront. There is a restaurant and loos etc and a car park that was half full . I think in the Summer months it would be very congested.
