This beach is quite easy to get to. A little small though. It was very cloudy when we were there so not the best experience.

It's a small beach and it's right in town, so stop by to see the sea, maybe take a dip. Not busy in November.

Temperature reached 26° the day we went and it was almost like having a private beach! Spent from 11am there, it was so peaceful and clean sand, only got busy with teenagers after 3pm. Walking distance from train station.

Walk down the steps to a soft sand beach, some umbrellas, protected little cove for a calm swim, but can get busy. Really close to lots of shops and McDonalds.

This is a very nice and small beach in Cascais. Reading the other reviews, seems that this beach has been kind of upgraded: small bar with drinks, snacks and ice cream, basic toilets (more like dress up rooms) and sunshades for rent. Enjoyed this beach...More
