Good place if you are looking to take a stroll or just enjoy the sunny day. On the other hand, I do not recommend to eat there, it´s very touristy

I don't really consider myself much of a beach person (but I know a little about beaches as I'm from a seaside town and used to live in Las Palmas). I really loved this one. Despite being right in the centre of town it had a really lovely relaxed atmosphere. Everyone was doing their own thing- whether playing football, volleyball,... More

A place I go to heal, the smell, the sounds, but must go early in the morning because lots of people visit it.

A very nice beach to escape to and very close to Lisbon. Easy to get to with bus transfer from Lisbon.

It's a beach like many others. Pretty small and extremely far away, but a lot of fun if you go with a group of loved ones. One of my favourite days spent in Lisbon.

The beach is a short walk from the train station but in the center of town which is convenient. Even though as with most beaches near train stations it is crowded this one was not too bad. Found a spot around 11 and hung out for a number of hours - kids played, built sandcastles and caught sand crabs. Perfect... More

If you're looking for a beach to spend the day, then go further from Cascais, like Guincho. This beach is too small. If I were to make a guess I'd say it's smaller than half a football field. When we were there it was very crowded too. However, if you're in town and would like to have an icecream on... More

This beach is very convenient when staying in the centre of Cascais and you are lazy to go elsewhere. It's very small and it can get overcrowded. The water is not particularly clean or clear - the local fishing boats are moored very near the beach.
