Cascais Portugal

Cascais beach, Portugal

The small beach town of Cascais Portugal is located right next to Estoril on the coast, and is part of the greater Lisbon area. It’s been something of a first in regards to the tourism industry in Portugal, possibly thanks to it being the former residence of the royal family.

This small and rather charming village is dominated by the bay on the one side and the imposing Cidadela fort on the other. The settlement has been around since sometime during the 12th century and has been inhabited ever since which means that its historic center is brimming with many architectural treasures of many types.

Getting to Cascais Portugal can be easily done when you’re coming from Lisbon, especially if you employ our Lisbon Airport transfers to take you from the airport straight here. Of course you can also take a train, but those who do not speak Portuguese will find it easier to reserve our Lisbon taxi transfers way ahead of time so that they reach their Cascais destination without problems.
