Interesting old town, far too touristy and because of this everything is overpriced. Folk are friendly and accommodating, but beware of pick pockets.

After a journey through the Marginal connecting Lisbon to Cascais in a cabriolet, we take to see Cascais and especially its bay with calm of those who have all afternoon to enjoy it. It is easy and relaxing to walk in the old town and you can even sunbath or bathing. We had lunch on a terrace (there are several... More

We went there for the Lumina festival which was pretty amazing. The town has a great vibe! It is located right by the sea and it brings up holiday spirit. Easily to get from Lisbon by train.

There is a very nice walkway along the water that passes several beaches. As you walk away from the water there are many good restaurants to choose from and many interesting shops. Make sure you stop along the way for gelato.
