After touring in Sintra, we continue to Cascais, cute little beach town. You need to stop by a shop that specialized in all cork merchandise! Plenty of cute stuff to buy for souvenirs. Nearby there is a good gelato place.

A very nice village to visit close to Lisbon. We have experienced it as friendly, quiet and above all peaceful. It made us completely relaxed and for sure we will come here more often.

Probably crowded in summer but in March a really beautiful place to go to. We walked the city, enjoyed the ocean and had a great dinner on a roof terrace restaurant.

Great place away from the hussle and bustle of lisbon. A quick 40 minute train ride takes you to the ocean. Lots of great places to eat and nice people watching. Can be windy and chilly so dress appropriately. Also if you like art go to the citadel.

Cascais has some quaint back streets with fab restaurants as well as coffee shops to sit in and watch world pass by. Beaches are great and there is a great walk along the seafront to Estoril

We walked all over the centre of Cascais. It is really beautiful and the locals are SO friendly. Central train station and about half an hour to get to Lisbon. Staff at the station are friendly and helpful. Couldn't be better!

We rarely leave the historic center as we enjoy walking it and visiting with the business owners and employees. The area is so picturesque, it's a photographers dream! Lots of amazing restaurants and the view of the bay is divine!

Took an afternoon trip to Cascais and loved it! I enjoyed lively streets surrounding a beach covered in fisherman boats, took a nice walk watching the ocean all the way to Boca do Inferno, and sat there to contemplate awesomeness. The train from Lisbon is like 2.50 euros (from Cais do Sodre) and they run regularly, so you can perfectly... More
