Pleasant hotel close to Tamariz Beach
Posted Jul 16, 2016
From arriving in Estoril to getting the cab to the airport it was an impressive 5 day break at Hotel Inglaterra. Getting to the hotel from the airport wasn't a problem, taking the aerobes into Lisbon(30mins) before catching the metro west to Estoril(35mins), around €7 total. The metro offers stunning views of the coast line too. From the metro station it is around a 5-10 minute walk to the hotel. Having the metro station so close is ideal for those who want to explore Cascais (2 stops west) or head back towards Lisbon.
The beach is located next to Estoril metro station and offers shops, bars and restaurants along the coast. As this is only a small beach there is much choice however the beach itself and the quality of the sea are super due to being maintained by the locals. If you are after a bigger beach including water sports and an array of bars/restaurants to choose from head to Cascais (1.5mile west). The coast line between the two is block paved offset from the beach which provides a good running route too. Its around 4 miles from the hotel to Tamariz beach, to Cascais, returning along the coast east to the furthest point of the paved walkway and back to the hotel.
Around the hotel there are a few shops, restaurants, bars, cash points and also the casino. If you are willing to travel to Cascais there is a lot more on offer in a touristic yet picturesque small town.
