This is a pretty beach town/tourist area. There are many restaurants, cafes, and shops to keep you occupied and refreshed. It is a clean well maintained area with some of the iconic Portuguese black and white wave tile. A very pretty place to stroll about.

Historic Center with the most beautiful wave design optical illusion tile work in the Seaside Square. Ancient and romantic, with a gorgeous beach down below the square. A playground for the rich and famous, far enough off the beaten path to be able to relax....More

The pedestrian area of Cascais is quite pleasant though it has become heavily touristy, with restaurant staff hustling passers by, which I find extremely annoying. Take a walk up to the old fort and marina. They are well kept and the walk is pleasant.
