Beachfront hotels in Cascais

Hello,

Does anyone has any hotel recommendation that's a real "beachfront" hotel?

I am planning a trip to Portugal for this May, and I'm thinking of staying in Cascais to take advantage of the beautiful beaches there. However, I can't seem to find any hotels that are really "oceanfront", where you can just walk up to the beach from your hotel. The few hotels facing the ocean that I've looked at, seem to be on the rocky coast, and not a sandy beach. Hotel Baia looks like it's on the beach, but I read that it's for fishermen?

Thank you very much!

Hotel Baia is in front of a beach called "dos Pescadores" (fishermen's beach) but they are located far from the sand. The beach only has its name. You also have Hotel Cascais Miragem.

Thank you for the replies. I was actually looking at Hotel Baia, but 64novpt, you said it's "far from the sand"? How far is the beach from Hotel Baia? As long as it's within walking distance, I'm happy :)

Thank you!

If you like, have a look at Google maps. It's a great tool to orient yourselves.

I did, it looks like the sand was right there..... that's why I was confused by 64novpt's comment being "far from the sand"...

From google maps, it looks like the beach is really close, no?

Yes, it's really close to the little beach there. Only I wonder if this little beach is the fisherman's beach and not really for sunbathing.

Isn't there a bigger beach right across from the Cascais Metro station? That's what Google Maps is showing me...

That should be within walking distance from Hotel Baia, right?

That beach doesn't look that there are sun bathers either.

If you look a little more to the right you will see them. According to Google maps it's only an 8 min. walk from hotel Baia.

Hopefully 64novpt will come back to fill you in!
