Cascais has been a popular holiday destination since the 19th Century and once only attracted the well-to-do and the jet-set. This part of the Lisbon Coast has retained its stylishness, but now caters to a wider range of holidaymaker.
The three fabulous beaches at Cascais offer all the activities that watersports enthusiasts could ask for, as well as soft sands and calm blue waters. An ideal way to enjoy this resort is by taking a stroll down the pleasant seafront promenade.
Away from the coast, the cobbled town is brimming with character. It is mostly pedestrianised and there are plenty of attractions to take in – old churches, shady green areas and a small zoo.
For evening entertainment, it has a great selection of bars and restaurants, both stylish and traditional. A Cascais holiday should also include a trip to the casino in nearby Estoril.
The resort provides the best of both worlds – not far from the contemporary capital city of Lisbon and sitting on the beautiful and relaxed Estoril Coast.
