Why go to Estoril

Basking in sunshine along the Atlantic coast, Estoril is one of Portugal’s most stylish seaside resorts. Set on a family-friendly sandy beach, and around 35 minutes by train from Lisbon, it’s a top spot for a beach holiday. Spend your days cycling, surfing and golfing, and try your luck in the glitzy casino after dark.

Part of the Portuguese Riviera, Estoril has been a coastal playground for the rich and famous since the 19th century. During World War II, the resort was a hotbed for spies – including James Bond author Ian Fleming – and exiled royal families. Today, Estoril remains a favourite escape for Lisboetas, who flock here on the weekend to soak up the sun.

Praia do Tamariz, the sheltered main beach, is just a few sandy steps from the palm tree-lined promenade that connects Estoril to the lively resort of Cascais. And there's no shortage of knockout beaches nearby: Praia das Moitas is a hit with families, while Praia do Guincho attracts surfers from across the globe, thanks to its feisty Atlantic waves.
