We really enjoyed our circuitous walk around the dunes. The only disturbing part was watching some idiots sliding down restricted dune areas. Definitely spoiled the tranquility. Some people just don’t get it. And, you can tell this goes on all the time when you see all the foot prints, of the two- and four-legged kind.
Anyway, we stopped midway at the cafe for a coffee and beer. Large picnic tables are available for sharing and meeting new people if you are into that. It was a great place to get some shade and is dog friendly (keep them on leash). There is parking at the cafe and parking along the road. Easy access. You can start your walk on the boardwalk from either the road or the cafe.

Amazing views ! Simple food but perfectly fine ! Absolutely must stop here. We were on a bike ride from Cascais and were recommended to have a snack here. Wonderful view of the coast and dunes!

I went to the nature park by e-bike (rented in Cascais). I had dinner at the small cafe, the salad and wine were very good and the view is stunning.I sat on the veranda almost till sunset, then I walked the wooden path back to the entrance. It was an enchanted evening.

The best short walking trail in the greater Lisbon (about one mile).
And the bar/cafe at the top is also, in my opinion, the one with the best view in the greater Lisbon.
I know what I’m talking about, I’ve lived here for 50 years ;-)

We look for natural experiences when we travel, and in our own backyard as well. My boyfriend had been part of a work effort on the dunes to help restore them to more of a natural state a couple of years ago, so we went to check upon their progress after being rid of the noxious and invasive ice plant that pervades much of Portugal's shorelines. What we found on the roughly one mile loop boardwalk path was a trip into a serene place--even though we took our walk on a bright, hot Sunday afternoon in August. We encountered one other couple on the loop, and felt the ocean breeze to cool us in the 28-degree sun. Most of the dunes' human and canine intruders have been kept off, allowing the dunes to assume their most natural state (given there are still buildings on the shore that block part of the natural wind and sand. It took us about 45 minutes to walk the loop at a leisurely pace, then we stopped for a bebida at the café and to see the interpretive displays at the information center. A beautiful way to enjoy the seaside without the crowds.

the "information center" isn't really interesting

the bar/bistro is a cheap selfservice place where you help yourself to a drink in a plastic cup... not really attractive

positive aspects: walk in the dunes and sunset views

Great little spot for a coffee and snack.

Sitting on a hill overlooking the coast you can either walk on a raised wooden path through the nature reserve or via a road set back from the coast.

Nice place to watch the sun going down

We rented bikes in Cascais and took off along the coast where there is a fantastic bike path. We didn't have any plans or were aware of this beautiful site which is part of the Sintra National park, but as we biked around the area, we decided to investigate. We were intrigued by the extensive elevated boardwalk over the dunes and tranquil landscape and decided to walk the entire circuit which took us a leisurely 45 minutes. There area a few bilingual signs along the way about different animals and plants that make their home here. It was just delightful and highly recommended as a half day trip out of Cascais including about 2 hours of biking and exploring the sand dunes. The little café and information center also includes bathrooms and some great snacks. Visiting the site is free and can be accessed from the bike path where there are also places to park and lock your bike. A perfect day outdoors!

If you are in the area stop by and take the nature trail to have a closer look at the sand dunes. It's a circular trail made of wooden planks perfect for an easy 40 min walk with beautiful views.
