Cascais

Come and discover the most sophisticated and elegant area in the Lisbon region beside the sea. In what used to be the most popular place for the old European royalty to spend the bathing season, experience the contrast between the calm beaches along the Linha and the inspiring Atlantic coast. With its dunes, pinewoods and dream houses, Cascais awaits.

With an amazing atmosphere and ocean views as far as the eye can see, Cascais is somewhere that nobody visiting Lisbon should miss. Just 20 minutes from the capital, it has a warm welcome for everyone, cycle lanes and urban beaches with inviting loungers. While the atmosphere in Estoril is more bohemian and cosmopolitan, mostly due to the largest casino in Europe and the surrounding lively nightlife, Cascais is an old fishing town and a seaside resort for cultural recreation.

The nautical tradition is paramount here and the marina and cycle lane to Guincho, as well as the available bicycles, let you get close to nature without yielding an inch in terms of glamour and urbanity. With various top restaurants and teahouses with unforgettable views, nothing prepares you for the panorama as you arrive at Guincho. This very popular beach when the northern winds subside, with Cape Roca in the background and intrepid surfers in the sea, is the town’s landmark feature. Visit Guincho to run, walk, sunbathe or get wet in the rain and prepare yourself for the constant wind which makes it one of the best beaches for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Returning to town, don’t forget to visit the Cidadela Art District in the Museum Neighbourhood and make the most of the fantastic local golf courses. Cascais is ideal for sport, with its perfect weather and amenities.
