Tamariz Beach, Estoril

4.0
#2 of 15 in Beaches in Lisbon District
Surrounded by waterfront restaurants and watched over by a medieval-style castle, Tamariz Beach has become one of the area's most popular beaches thanks to its proximity to Lisbon. Make your way along the expansive stretch of sand, grab an umbrella, and kick back while soaking up some rays or going for a dip in the shallow, calm coastal waters. You won't have trouble spotting the fortresslike residence owned by Monaco's royal family, which is built on the site of an older defensive structure. You can visit many bars and restaurants nearby. Keep in mind that parking is at a premium in the area. You might prefer to catch the train from Lisbon that runs frequently to the nearby town of Estoril.

    The beach a bit more reserved, slightly protected from the wind by the rock wall. With many restaurants and shops close.

    And a very nice beach. Sometimes on weekends is very full. And the annoying and if we want to stop the car for nearby and always pay the parking lot and it's red zone. But otherwise nothing to point at the beach.

Where to stay in Cascais

The seaside resort town of Cascais, one of Lisbon's wealthiest suburbs, offers solid options for both enjoying the sun and surf and getting away from the bustle of the capital. By staying right near the beach, you'll be within easy walking distance of both the soft sand and the restaurants and bars of the town center. Most of the bigger hotels along the waterfront and near the marina provide balconies and sweeping views over the ocean as well. However, you can also check into a smaller guesthouse for a lower bill and equally good location in the center of town. Grabbing a room at one of the guesthouses or hotels in nearby Estoril offers a similar beachfront experience not far from Cascais itself, plus this location offers more in terms of choice.
