A glittering getaway on the Portuguese Riviera, Estoril is positioned a short distance to the west of cosmopolitan Lisbon. This chic resort is famed for its beautiful sun-kissed beaches and quiet Portuguese charm. Estoril is dominated by its Grand Casino and has long been the favoured getaway for Europe’s royal families. The Casino was once a haven for World War II spies and served as the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s James Bond, Casino Royale. Today, Estoril is a prime destination for 2020 holidays - not just for jetsetters, but also families who want to enjoy quiet, palm-fringed beaches.

There’s plenty to see and do during holidays in Estoril. Soak up the classic glamour at the Estoril Casino or the abundant sunshine on the resort’s tranquil beaches.

Local families gather with international visitors on fashionable Tamariz Beach, Estoril’s main attraction. It’s famed for its powdery, soft sand and peppermint-striped loungers. Find your spot under a shady umbrella and enjoy watching the world go by here during your Estoril holidays. In the summer months, the beach heats up with live music and residents take part in football and volleyball matches in the sand.

The beach is skirted by a coastal path and promenade, lined with bars and restaurants allowing you to enjoy a cool drink with your sea views. You can wander along this path all the way to neighbouring fishing village Cascais, which offers another beach and plenty of water sports. Hop on a guided boat tour to explore the Lisbon Coast or visit northern beaches like Praia do Guincho for excellent surfing conditions. There are also a number of attractive beaches and resort towns to Estoril’s east, easily accessible by railway or car.
