Things to do
The Estoril Golf Course is a challenging one, with some stunning scenery as a backdrop while you practice your putting. Not far from the area’s luxury hotels, you can play a round of golf then enjoy a cooling drink as you look out onto the Atlantic.
The coastline here is pristine. Tamariz beach has rows of elegant sun loungers and umbrellas, and there are plenty of restaurants and ice cream parlours too. Or take to the water and explore beneath the waves. You’ll find a number of places offering to rent snorkelling and kayaking equipment along the front at Estoril.
Chic Estoril is a favourite with royals and celebrities, and the home of a flourishing casino. It was even the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale. Don your tuxedo and channel your inner James Bond. Or simply sip a cocktail and watch others stake at the gambling tables.
