The Estoril Coast
Wonderful beaches where you can relax in the sun and forget about everything. Gardens, houses and palaces that take you back to the past. Excellent restaurants offering a wide choice of fish and seafood. All the facilities necessary to play your favourite sport. And fascinating places like Cascais, where the tradition of being a fishing town combines with the grandeur of its medieval citadel and all the glamour bestowed upon it at the beginning of the 20th century, when it became the official summer residence of the royal family.
Despite being small in size, the Estoril Coast is big in terms of possibilities. Bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, the region stretches all the way from the Tagus Estuary to the Guincho Beach near the Serra de Sintra, home to mainland Europe’s most westerly point. Thanks to its close proximity to Lisbon, there is the added advantage of having an international airport nearby, as well as the Cascais-Tires Municipal Aerodrome. Quickly and easily accessible, the region is well served by rail and road, most notably the scenic coast road known as the Estrada Marginal.
The Estoril Coast’s climate is temperate throughout the year and never subject to any extreme weather conditions. The region benefits from a unique microclimate influenced by the biological structure of the mountain, which is home to a wide variety of flora, fauna and lush, green landscapes .
Geographic Location The proximity to Lisbon, that stays only 2 hours away from the main European airports, and the fact of being one of the main entrance doors in Europe to flights coming from South America, gave to the Estoril Coast a privileged geographic location regarding to other destinations.
