The train that runs from Lisbon to Cascais provides a breathtaking view over the coast of Lisbon as far as the charming fishing town of Cascais. We tell you a bit more about the charms of the Cascais Coastline.
If you have a limited amount of time and hiking isn’t your thing, we suggest a full train ride and that you sit on the left. If you like hiking and like to travel at your own pace, our suggestion is that you leave Lisbon for São Pedro do Estoril. At this point, you have a 3 km route along the coast. You will pass by Estoril, one of the most famous seaside resorts in the country in the 1960s. Carry on along the coast until you reach the charming town of Cascais. The bay in the village is beautiful and the historical downtown area is just as good. After this walk, if you have any energy left, take the path to Guincho beach, one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in the region. If you want to do this journey by bike, you can rent one in Cascais.
Enjoy the proximity to the sea and enjoy fresh fish and seafood. We suggest the Porto de Santa Maria, Faroleiro ou Furnas do Guincho restaurants.
