Cascais is just 30 kilometers from Lisbon and well worth the visit. It is very popular tourist destination, easily reached by train or by car. Its historic center is a nice area filled with shops, bars and restaurants. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon, walking along the beaches and admiring the old part of the town.

Cascais is a cute beach/coastal town. The historic center is filled with shops, cafe's, restaurants, and plazas to hang out. There is a nice public park with peacocks, rosters, and other birds. Children play areas, bocci, and other relaxing games abound. The center is also very close to the beaches. Whether passing through on a trip to Sintra, doing a... More

A lovely little town, very manageable with lots to see and do and plenty of eating and drinking dens. The beach is crowded, the sea is clean, the views are lovely. Lots of green grassy areas and cobbled streets and squares. Very relaxing and a happy atmosphere. A must visit.

Little gem of a town 30 minutes from Lisbon. Narrow alleys, old buildings. Plenty of good restaurants. Shopping a bit more expensive than elsewhere in Portugal. Organised beaches but cold Atlantic water.

Worthwhile to walk through if you are in the area, even though there isn't that much to be seen. There is also a small harbor nearby. (rating between Average and Good)
