is the main beach , but there are others . The train station is just
behind the castle styled thing, & the casino garden across the busy
main road. You can pay for a lounger, & shade, or use the public
section for nothing, but you have to bring your own gear.
They had a whole lot of things going on in the casino gardens over the summer E.G. bike show, rally starts, or finishes, live music, fireworks, seven plastic pipes one painted in each colour of the rainbow what's that all about?
This picture was taken from a small bridge over an inlet that would allow small boats to approach at high tide . I think some member of Royalty lived here after Portugal became a republic? You can go around the house for a small fee. It is near the lighthouse.
can go up to the top of the Mariners' Monument for a small fee , but we
didn't bother as there was a queue, & it was overcast anyway.
castle style palace may not compare in terms of size to Versailles , or
Buckingham, but I liked it's human scale, & quirkiness. In side is
a fine collection of china. The palace was built over many years by
several kings, & so reflects the fashions of each era. As usual you
have to pay to go in, & be warned it is at the top of a steep hill,
although you can get a bus some of the way. I think you can get a train
from Lisbon, but we took the bus from Estoril. From the top you can see
all the way to the coast.
