“Great Town to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Many travel books suggest staying in Lisbon and taking a day trip to Cascais. I'd suggest the opposite -- stay in Cascais and take day trips to Lisbon. While there's not much to do in this town, it is very picturesque and relaxing. We were there in October so going to the beach wasn't an option, but walking along the beach was nice and, I expect, this would be even more fantastic during the summer.

“Of season”

We stopped there on our way back from Sintra and Cabo da Roca. It was quite and nice to walk around the almost empty streets.

“Glad we went.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

A very easy drive from Lisbon, and worth the trip. Only took us about 30 minutes by car. Ate at the first restaurant that we saw that was right on the water, and had a lovely lunch on a beautiful sunny day. Spent some time strolling through the streets and looking in shops. A very relaxing and enjoyable visit to a quaint little town.

“A NICE SIDE TRIP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Reminds me of what forest hills ny used to look like with out a beach, or what Deal NJ looks like today.Oceanfront bike path and a nice village to stroll through with an assortment of high end & tourist attractions.although it's about a 40 minute train ride from Lisbon this is not a half day trip.plan to spend a full day here and go see Boca de Inferno , it's worth it.

We can feel the charisma of Cascais with the fisherman's village in the centre and the views to the ocean!
