Beach
“One of the finest beaches in Cascais with stunning coastal scenery and a backdrop of the Sintra mountains. Ideal for surfers with great waves. It can be quite windy after 2pm. There are many great seafood restaurants within the area with spectacular views. However the food can be quite expensive!”

Tennis Court
“This beach is close to Cascais which is another attraction. Both are easy to find and to make a perfect 2 for 1 day. To get there: take the train from Cais de Sodre until the last Estoril stop. TIPS: put 10euros on a metro card BEFORE getting to cais de sodre because there are many tourists and he get super long and stressful to get your ticket from the station. Use any machine from any other metro station on your way to do so. ”

“This is probably th ebest sea-food restaurants in Cascais. it's well worth the detour! As always, to avoid surprizes ask for the price of anything that staff suggests. I recommend going for lunch and then going for a swim at the nearby (windy) Guincho beach”

“If you're in Lisbon, you definitely can't leave without taking a tour through Cascais. Less than an hour away from the city - and you can even take the train and enjoy the view on the way there - it's the true jewel of Portugal's capital. I recommend take a day trip tour from Lisbon to Sintra with a stop in Cascais ”
