“Great beach town with nice shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Nice beaches and great walking path along the water. Get there early if you want to rent an umbrella and lounge chair. The prices aren't too bad at many of the cafes along the water, but many overprices shops!

“Shopping Mall, tourist sites and great beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Huge shopping mall in Cascais with lots of restaurants. You can also visit Sintra where the views are stunning and lots of tourist attractions and some fine restaurants. Estoril is not far from there where there is a huge casino and quite a few beaches.

“Okay if you bring your bathing suit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is a little seaside town pronounced "kash-keesh." There are a lot of good little places to eat. The day we were there it was blazing hot and we did not have our bathing suits. It is very reminiscent of one of the little beach towns on the Cinquaterra. It might be a nice place to stay for a few days to "chill" and swim. It is not much to sightsee.
