Lovely place to visit. We had loads of sun in January. Since we are from the Netherlands where it was much and much colder we loved the warm temperatures here.

We were on a bus tour and Cascais was one of the optional excursions from Lisbon. We enjoyed our time there in the lazy fishing town by the sea. Take the time to relax and wander along the sea-walk on the waterfront to the right. There is a beach in town and we saw an interesting sand castle on the... More

Cascais is a great day trip from Lisbon. There is a local train that follows the coast line and ends in Cascais. There a plenty of restaurants, boutiques and several museums t all within walking walking distance. Rent a bike and go out to Guincho a famous surfing beach. Cascais is very picturesque

A very quaint coastal town not too far from Lisbon. Great for a day trip. Picturesque marina area. The town has a variety of shops and restaurants. Charming cobble stone town square. Settlement in this area actually dates back to the Roman period.
