Cascais is a cute beach/coastal town. The historic center is filled with shops, cafe's, restaurants, and plazas to hang out. There is a nice public park with peacocks, rosters, and other birds. Children play areas, bocci, and other relaxing games abound. The center is also very close to the beaches. Whether passing through on a trip to Sintra, doing a... More

Beautiful place with local people and tourists. Very convenient if you are looking for a place with beach and close to the see. I recommend visiting the marina

A lovely little town, very manageable with lots to see and do and plenty of eating and drinking dens. The beach is crowded, the sea is clean, the views are lovely. Lots of green grassy areas and cobbled streets and squares. Very relaxing and a happy atmosphere. A must visit.

Little gem of a town 30 minutes from Lisbon. Narrow alleys, old buildings. Plenty of good restaurants. Shopping a bit more expensive than elsewhere in Portugal. Organised beaches but cold Atlantic water.

Worthwhile to walk through if you are in the area, even though there isn't that much to be seen. There is also a small harbor nearby. (rating between Average and Good)

Surely a very nice walking . Streets are full restaurants , small shops . Some historical buildings including the fortress ( which is now a hotel ) - a must see.

Nice place to see when you visit Lisbon. Only 30 minutes from the capital. Sea atmosphere with beautiful points of view. Please search typical good restaurant in the small streets of the city. See my review about Os Bordallos. I think it is very plaisant during summer with small beaches and many activities.
