Beach holiday near Lisbon for family with 1 year old child

Hi, looking for recommendations for a nice, not too expensive, beach holiday (3-4 days at the end of April 2014) near Lisbon suitable for a family with a one year old child, and grandparents in tow! Looking for a short break whilst attending a family wedding in Lisbon. Also, needs to be vegetarian friendly! Is it best to go for hotel or apartment/villa?

Many thanks

You can stay in Lisboa and take the train to go to the beach, the closest option is Carcavelos, but you also have Estoril and Cascais (around 45min trip, very scenic). It's an urban train very frequent and cheap. Lisboa will have more vegetarian restaurant options than any other town around it. But your choice of location may depend on where the wedding will be and if you need to take public transports to get to the venue.

Choose Cascais, it's lovely: http://www.cascais-portugal.com/index.html

and if you are looking for not so expensive, an apartment may suit you.

There are several websites which offer rentals directly from owners:
