And with Lisbon only 25 minutes away and Cascais only 15 minutes, you can get all the cosmopolitan and night life you need.
Lisbon & the Lisbon Coast are both an all-year-round destination. Summers, whilst warm are rarely oppressive and the cooling sea breeze keeps it comfortable even during the hottest months. Very mild winters mean you can enjoy your short break in the winter sun in Cascais and Lisbon.
Lisbon itself has lots to delight; from taking an old electric tram up the steep hills of Lisbon to whizzing up to the top of the Santa Justa Elevator to get a panoramic view of the city of Lisbon. Do visit Alfama (the old quarter) and be sure to wear comfortable rubber soled shoes to avoid slipping on the cobbles. In the evenings, take in a Fado evening over dinner in one of the many restaurants in this area - feel free to ask us where best to go. Bairro Alto is also wonderfully lively at night – quite a young atmosphere where you will find party goers spilling out of the restaurants and bars onto the pavements to continue the party. Try the Fado houses and late night bars/clubs.
June 12th is the night of the Festival of St Anthony; the best night for trying traditional sardines in Lisbon.
Go by tram - #15 is the best - to Belem. It leaves from Praça Figueira and stops at Praça do Comerçio and Cais do Sodré before going on to Belem - a wonderful place of fountains, parks, monuments and monasteries.
Worth visiting in the Estremadura and beyond are, Óbidos, Sintra, Azeitão & Setúbal, Fatima & Nazaré. Alentejo is a little further (about 2 hours) but worth visiting are Évora and Monsaraz. The Esporão Wine Estate is worth having lunch at if you are going as far as Monsaraz.
We can offer you a day excursion at competitive rates. See our Tours section.
Beaches, Golf & Gastronomy
Coast / Beach
A few mins drive away is the magnificent, spectacular Guincho coastline, with sandy beaches and rocky coves. You can have surf lessons here on this beach as well.
The beach has preferred surfing conditions and is popular for surfing, windsurfing, and kite surfing. Strong northern winds are predominant during summer time (June–August) as well as smaller north-west swells, making this beach ideal for windsurfing and kite surfing. During winter (especially December), the predominant winds are from the east, and swells increase in size, making it a perfect spot for surfing, with multiple beach-breaks providing powerful lefts and rights. There are also several surf camps and surf schools in the area that provide accommodation and services including rentals, repairs and surfing classes.
There is camping available at nearby Orbitur Point, approximately 1 km from the beach.
This beach was famously featured in the pre-titles sequence of the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service, wherein James Bond rescues Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo from a suicide attempt and foils off two attackers in the surf; the beach still looks as it did in 1969. More recently, the beach served as location for the shooting of the film This Side of Resurrection, directed by Joaquim Sapinho.
In the 90's, Guincho was one of the locations for the windsurfing world cup. Today, several sporting events are held at Guincho regularly, including the Portuguese National Surfing and Body Boarding Championships.
The Cascais beaches, thanks to the 'Linha de Cascais' (name of the train line joining Lisbon to Cascais), and the 'Marginal' (name of the scenic seaside road linking Cascais, Estoril and Oeiras to centre of Lisbon), are easily accessible by public or private transport.
These have superb beach restaurants dotted all along the way serving fresh fish, sardines, various seafood and the famous Portuguese steak roll (Prego no pão). Otherwise, visit (by bus or cycle there on the purpose built bicycle path) the Guincho Beach on spectacular un-spoilt coastline. It offers perfect conditions for surfing and there are beach bars on most of them offering refreshments.
Take a day trip to one of the Sintra beaches such as Praia Grande, Praia Maças and Praia da Adraga. Adraga Beach restaurant serves fish and seafood which tastes like they caught it just before serving it. Or try the "restaurant with a view" Azenhas do Mar. Beautiful views and beautiful food.
