The short, sandy beach of Tamariz in Estoril is one of the most popular on this stretch of coast between Lisbon and Cascais. It is particularly favoured with those holidaying in the area and can get rather busy during the summer months.
There is a train station just behind the beach and there are a number of bars, cafes and even a nightclub right on the beachfront.
The faux castle overlooking the beach is apparently owned by the Monaco royal family
