And if you want to take a break from the city, just get a one day trip to Cascais and Sintra. On your way to Cascais, you can also visit Belém for a couple of hours. Cascais has charming, cobblestone streets and peaceful little cafés where you can sit, read your book and let life freely flow.Anca Iorgulescu
DAY 4 – CABO DA ROCA, CASCAIS
Last room at the Ajuda National Palace DAY 4 – CABO DA ROCA, CASCAIS 1. CABO DA ROCA Do you want to see the ocean? Then you have to go to Cabo da Roca. It’s the westernmost point of Europe with great views of the cliffs and lighthouse on the Atlantic Ocean. It is quite windy so bring a warm jacket. If you are a landscape photographer, it just isn’t better than this.Emanuel

Anchoring at Cascais
Arrival It was 02:30 in the morning when I dropped the anchor amongst other boats at the anchorage at Cascais. The night was dark; it was close to new moon, only the street lights from ashore, the navigation marks, some of the boats’ anchor lights and the instruments aided me to find the spot that had enough swinging room and depth under the keel to stay safe. I was arriving after a week sail from Spain; when everything was set the way I was happy with, I fell into bed and slept like a baby until the morning.attila-vedo
A weekend in the city of miradours- Lisbon
If we are talking about summer you must see the “cream of European surf”. Check out this beaches: Guincho, Ericeria, these two are famous among Surf lovers, Cascais and Tamariz, perfect for sunbathe and relaxed afternoon, very close to the city, around 20-30 minutes train ride from Campolide station. The Sunset, the beach -a cliché but one worth living in Lisbon after a night of partying.LilyAmza
Off the beaten track in Portugal..
Don’t you want to escape the “tourist traps” the places everyone goes? Surely enough you know these places don’t show you the realism of the county they just look fancy and rip you off ! There is a little fishing village just outside of Lisbon (Portugal) called Cascais. Cascais is a one way train ride from Lisbon it’s literally the last stop so you cannot miss it ! The train takes about 30-40 minutes along the most beautiful coastal line and once your there it will be hard to leave.AK
