The Portuguese Riviera - Small Group Walking and Cycling Half Day in Cascais
We are based in Cascais and we obviously know the hows and wheres. After meeting we will head to the promenade for an enjoyable 3km walk to Estoril and back. The route follows the sea walls and sea defences that line the beaches and rock outcrops of the coastline. The promenade is flat and is suitable to visitors of all ages and abilities. The Estoril promenade passes many of the region’s quaintest beaches and there are many interesting sights, historical buildings and outdoor cafes.
Once we are back in Cascais we will get on our bikes and ride to the stunning, surfing beach of Praia de Guincho following a purpose built cycle path. This 10km round trip is an enjoyable half day tourist and local activity. The route follows the dramatic cliff coastline and passes multiple interesting sights. No shortage of cafes, patisseries, and restaurants along the way and when we finish.Itinerary
After meeting we will depart from the station square in Cascais and stroll to Estoril and back along the seaside promenade. We will then get our hybrid or electric bikes and cycle along a majestic seaside scenery towards Guincho Beach and back again towards Cascais centre where we will end our day with a marvellous "pastel de nata" and a comforting coffee (or anything else you might fancy of course). It is a glorious and classy day out on the coast!Stop At:
