Home / Portugal/ Lisbon Estoril & Cascais/ Cascais
A small beach town in Portugal next to Estoril’s coast and in the Lisbon area. It has quickly gained popularity from a sleepy fishing village to a much-loved summertime family destination with its trio of golden coasts dragging people to go for a splash in the Atlantic.

As a former residence of the royal family and pioneer of tourism in Portugal, it is a very charming village still and the Costa do Sol remains the quaint fishing port where daily catch is auctioned off in the harbourside square and colourful boats still bob about in the harbour.

Dominated by the bay and the imposing Cidadela fort, the historic centre is brimming with architectural treasures of a religious, military and civil nature. The museums of the Sea, Casa das Histórias de Paula Rego, and the Municipal Museum Condes de Castro Guimarães are also must-see attractions.

With a wealth of coastal beaches, it has something for all that visit, not to mention, the food is out of this world wherever you end up.
