A quiet beach town along the Lisbon coast

Cascais Portugal

[CASCAIS, PORTUGAL] — About a half-hour outside of Lisbon, Cascais is a great little beach town along the coast and the perfect base to explore the entire Lisbon coast. You can rent a car or the commuter train from Lisbon can drop you right smack in the middle of the town and the beach. It’s not the most picture-perfect place — a lot of English pubs and shops selling tat catering to package tours from England — but certainly has many charms.  The best of which is its location, easy to ride a bike or taxi out to the killer Guincho beach or shoot up to Sintra, about 40 minutes away in the inland mountains. the in-town beaches aren’t the best, more convenient than pretty, but easy to get to the awesome Western coast of the European continent.

Boca da Infierno

A 10 minute walk outside is the Boca da Infierno, not the coolest thing in the world, but a nice enough rocky coastline for a walking destination
