Along this beautiful coastal area of Europe, the choice of beaches is endless and some of them are famous worldwide for their water sports activities
Cascais and Sintra (patrimony of UNESCO) offers some of the best bathing conditions and water-sports in Portugal, depending on the kind of beach you choose. A bigger or lower exposition to the Atlantic ocean means more or less crowded beaches and different water-sports. We recommend the coast along Estoril for sheltered beaches and from Cascais/Guincho until Praia das Maçãs for more wild conditions.
Between Lisbon/Sintra/Cascais you can choose cultural many activities.
LISBON, Portugal’s bright capital, spreads along the north bank of the River Tagus, which meets the ocean here.
One of the few European capitals with both a river and a coastline
A tourist region par excellence, Sintra is one of the most delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed "a garden of the earthly paradise", described by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe"
A picturesque former fishermen's village, with the ocean ever present, it offers places of rare beauty such as the sea, Boca do Inferno, Cabo Raso and Guincho beach.
Serviced by a highway, an aerodrome and a marina, Cascais is a village of easy access. It is cheerful, busy and offers excellent cultural and hotel infrastructure with pleasant terraces, bars restaurants and commercial areas.
Has been the havens of many kings and aristocrats exiled during the 20th century and is internationally known for its beaches, exceptional weather, baths, casino and luxury hotels. It also offers Tennis and golf resorts, swimming pools and a pleasant promenade along the sea between Estoril and Cascais that gives access to several beaches.
