WHAT TO DO IN CASCAIS IN WINTER SEASON
5 tips for places and activities to enjoy the best that Cascais has to offer.
The coast of Cascais is one of Portugal’s popular areas during the summer, but it’s not because it gets colder that it loses all its charm from day to night. And if you don’t like crowds, this is the best time of the year to enjoy Cascais without large concentrations of tourists and visitors.
Here are 5 tips on what you can do in Cascais this winter and make the most of one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Portugal:
- Explore the historical centre
The town of Cascais is always a must-see, at any time of the year. Take the opportunity to take a walk through the streets of the centre and learn about the history of this former fishing village that captivates any visitor, both for its natural beauty and its calming atmosphere.
2. Boca do Inferno (Hell’s Mouth)
If you like to witness the true force of nature (at a safe distance, of course), Boca do Inferno (Hell’s Mouth) is waiting for you. But don’t let the name of the place put you off, because the foam formed by the violent impact of the waves on the rocks is a striking image that can be seen, heard and felt only by those who get closer.
3. Walking along the beach
The weather is clearly not the most inviting for sunbathing and a dip in the icy water is only for the bravest, but a winter stroll along any of Cascais’ beaches (and there are many to choose from) is a recommendation that never fails. For those who like walking on the sand, listening to the sound of the sea and feeling the wind on their face, Cascais has the best places for this.
4. Cabo da Roca
If you have some time, make sure you visit the westernmost point of Europe. Cabo da Roca makes a perfect backdrop for great photos, romantic walks and is even a popular meeting point for the motorbike community on Sunday mornings.
5. Enjoy the scenery
Any place you visit in Cascais will always have one thing guaranteed: the breathtaking view. Whether you decide to go for a walk on the beach or explore the town’s history, the best recommendation for enjoying winter in Cascais is to soak up the scenery ahead of you and the unique beauty this coast has to offer.
