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.

How to get around

How to get around Cascais

Cascais itself is a walkable place that stretches around a historic marina to a duo of beautiful beaches. The heart of it is pedestrianised, so it's perfect for navigating on foot. It takes around 10 minutes to get from end to end, that way. Getting back and forth to and from Lisbon is super-easy, thanks to the regular direct train links that go in and out of Cascais Station throughout the day. If you're keen on dodging the crowds with a Cascais villa rental in the more secluded reaches of the Portuguese Riviera, it might be better to rent a car – that goes for places in the nearby surfing hub of Guincho Beach, too.
