“Wonderful place at Easter”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I suspect Cascais is heaving in Summer but at Easter it was really delightful. A gracious town with good food and lovely beaches and a pretty old town

“People watching at its best”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Quaint old town area with plenty of restaurants and cafés. Great place to share some coffee or wine and enjoy the atmosphere. Plenty of touristy shops for trinkets and some selection for art.
We watched a sand sculptor on the beach as well. Hubby loved the show expensive fancy cars touring around the strip area ie. porche etc.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Cascais is very appealing and has a lovely, laid back atmosphere. It was a bit chilly when we were there but once the Spring/Summer starts, it must be gorgeous. A jewel in a crown. Lovely walks, parks and fairytale buildings/castles plus lovely restaurants.

“Charming”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

This is probably the most charming Portuguese town by far. When I lived in Lisbon I used to go to Cascais just to relax as this is a lovely stroll indeed and the atmosphere is great. If in Lisbon go to Cais Sodré station (metro) then catch the train (30 minutes).
