Outdoor activities

Surfing and more around Cascais holiday homes

Look for a Cascais holiday cottage close to the windy sands and rocks of Guincho Beach, if you want to be in the heart of the surfing action. It's across the headland from the middle of the town, but comes peppered with wave-riding schools and washed by reliable year-round swells. Those armed with their own boards and wheels can drive the coast roads to the region of Ericeira. It's a tad to the north and has even more Atlantic rollers to conquer. Coastal hikes offer an altogether different outdoors adventure. Trails weave all around the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, with some even poking out to Cabo da Roca – the westernmost point in all of mainland Europe.
