We visited the beach from Lisbon by train (40 mins)and that was a painful experience. Although this is not what I am reviewing I feel you should know to expect very long queues for tickets and pretty full trains as it is a popular route (My tip is to bring lots of change and buy a return ticket for zone 4, as this is not very clear anywhere). The beach itself is a short walk from the train station in Cascais. It is a busy beach so it took us quite some time to find a spot. It is an active port so expect plenty of noise and smells.As the title reads it's nothing amazing and we did not make a second trip out to it, but if you are around Cascais it's worth a look.

Old Town Cascais and Boca do Inferno are more worth the visit than this beach if you're on a tight schedule, but because it's so conveniently located close to or along the way to these other attractions, you're likely to pass this beach regardless. It's packed with visitors and by the quality of the sand, I'd rate this an average beach. However, the ambiance surrounding the beach, such as the nearby marina and the Cascais town center, adds to the appeal of this beach so stumble upon this and it's worth at least a quick look.

Golden sands, a sea-washed paddling pool for small children, backed by snack bars and restaurants -- another fine Cascais beach.

We are staying in Lisbon but have spent 5 days already on this beach. It is very picturesque. The beach itself is very clean and easy to negotiate. Highly recommend spending time here. Surprisingly quite and uncrowded. Summer months are probably much busier. Plenty of food, drink available. Bathrooms and showers also. Wonderful place to spend a day. Highly recommend.

This beach is very differente from what we are used to see here in Brasil (but to European patterns it's great), though it's a very nice place to enjoy a day with friends or family. The sand strip is a little narrow and it may get crowded in the weekends (we went there in a saturday with little sun and there was a lot of people in the beach, so imagine in the summer).
Anyway, this is just one of the great beaches that you can enjoy in Portugal.
