Have been there with local friends. It is a very nice, historic town. Perfect for an afternoon walk, with some typical food. Recommendable to visit.

Fishermen's village with great ambiance and awesome food. 40 minute train ride from Lisbon for only €3. Tip: get out at Estoril station and walk from there along the boulevard next to the ocean to Cascais.

Great little town with an excellent harbour and the Paula Rego Museum just up the hill. Coffee at the sea front was a disaster but the ice cream later from a ready made firm was fantastic.

Interesting place to walk around, with unexpected sights, right on the seaside and usually good weather. Lots of good restaurants, with a wide variety of food but I would especially recommend typical Portuguese seafood .

In Cascais you can have the best of 2 worlds: sea & beaches and historical buildings and history. On top of that very nice people and top food

Beautifull small village, where you can walk from one end to the other without dissapointment. Every place in town has something magical, from little castles/palaces, beautiful parks, oceanview walk passing by Boca do Inferno (natural coastal rock formation), a beatiful beach in a bay, nice restaurants, great icecream joints, cool bars and traditional pubs.

Recommended by friends and admittedly on a blustery wet day we still found ourselves captivated by Cascais. Sure it's a bit touristy, sure it's a bit over priced, but for all that it has some class, character, charm and great attractions as well as plenty of places to unwind, have a snack, a drink or a full on lunch or...
