Marina de Cascais

Cascais has a long-established seafaring tradition dating back to the Age of Discovery.  The modern marina was only built in 1999, with the more recent additions of shops, high-end bars and restaurants.  The marina in Cascais is the third largest in Portugal and has hosted a number of world-class sailing events including the America’s Cup World Series 2011 and the ISAF World Sailing Championship 2007.

There is a lively atmosphere here in the summer months, with the usual yachting crowds mingling with tourists who come here to admire the array of splendid sailing craft, people-watch and soak up the nautical atmosphere.

The marina has 650 berths, accommodating boats up to 36 metres in length, with an outer quay for larger yachts.
