We visited for the day from Lisbon and this beach was perfect. Nice and clean, with a lifeguard, a bar and toilet available, plus only a couple of minutes to the more traditional (no Irish bars!) side of town. The sea was freezing but our taxi driver said it was warmer later in the year. Would recommend!

There are a number of beaches to choose from in Cascais but not having researched fully, and having come across this one first, we opted to head down. 2x sun loungers and a parasol cost 20 Euros but are worth the outlay; if you approach them then a salesman will appear quickly so don’t worry about looking for him! One of his colleagues works for a bar (there are two or three situated around the beach) who will happily collect drinks or sandwiches at a reasonable rate - decent beer and food too. Beach is well situated to the train station and also the Cascais branch of Santini - delicious ice cream!

We came for the day from Lisbon which I think took about 30min getting off a the last stop on leaving the train station we went left and headed down the main drag which was full of restaurants of all types looked fantastic almost as if it was off the west coast of California!
There’s also a large supermarket at the station if you forgot your sun cream or hat!
To get to the beaches when you come out of the station turn right as if heading back in the direction of the train. You will come across the first beach, this is lovely and the one you see empty in all the lovely photos. We got there in the afternoon and it was absolutely packed. However on our way we had been given good advice by a local who said to get off at the station just before the end and walk along the shore to pick your beach! All the tourists go to the first 2, wished we had listened as we ended up going to the last beach where the Station is , loads of restaurant and toilets near all of them , one beach is full of Little Rock pools but in my opinion if the little kids are going climbing make sure you all wear surf shoes or similar. All the beaches were lovely but try to arrive early. Would definitely come back to the whole area again

We stayed in Lisbon and just got a metro to Cais do Sodre and took a train to Cascais - took 30 mins and there are many trains leaving Cais do Sodre station. Just come out the entrance of the station in Cascais, cross the road and you will find Praia da Rainha which is a small beach but walk a bit further left and you will find Praia da Conceicao which is bigger, has toilets, bars, restaurant - absolutely perfect. There is a promenade that links Praia da Conceicao to Tamariz - a nice easy 30 min stroll and restaurants all along the way. It was a lovely way to spend a day at the beach away from Lisbon if you want to get out of the city. I loved it.

Fine golden sand beach well protected from the Atlantic Ocean. For us the water was comfortable at about 70 F/20C. Gradual entrance to the water, which is great for kids swimming or paddling.

Loungers and umbrellas available for rent.

This is one of the most popular beaches in Cascais. Very clean and popular with families as many water attractions. Council maintains it every morning at 6 a.m

This is a wonderful beach close to the downtown area of Cascais. Luckily we could easily walk here from our rental house as trying to find a parking space in the summer is next to impossible. The beach is sandy and very clean and restaurants are within walking distance or right on the edge of the beach.

There are activities in the water about 200 feet from the shore. You pay 5 euros each and get 40 minutes of fun. Kids get brought out on a small board but adults have to swim. The water is icy cold even in August and I could not even stand in the water it was too cold for me.

Good to Know:
- Bring your own food & drink
- Bring a large towel or buy one at McDonald’s up the street for €1 with meal purchase
- The large towels that vendors are selling on the beach are the perfect size but will colour you and your things- beware! We turned blue and purple and so did our clothes and bags.

Pros:
- Sandy beach
- Not too many young children growing sand around
- Didn’t see or experience any theft
- Not too many beach vendors and they aren’t pushy

Cons:
- Water is polar ice cold
- Many teenagers trying to show off to one another around
- Beach bar is expensive
