Sightseeing

As the parc is located within the Sintra Cascais Natural Park - one of just 13 in the country - you have access to some wonderful scenery. Just a short drive away is the charming town of Cascais, with a bold but beautiful mixture of modern and traditional architecture. The western-most point of Europe, Cabo de Roca is definitely worth a day out, as is Portugal's capital city, Lisbon and can be reached via a bus which stops right outside the entrance and takes you right into the centre. Also worth a visit is Lisbon Zoo as well as the Oceanarium, described as 'a deep-sea diving experience without the risks'!

Days Out

Oceanario Lisbon

Oceanario de Lisbon

Oceanario de Lisbon will also be an unforgettable day out. It has been described as a ‘deep-sea diving experience without the risks’.

Lisbon zoo

Lisbon Zoo

Lisbon Zoo is not your traditional zoo but an important and attractive park where education and amusement are encouraged. Make memories of kissing sea lions, feeling the skin of a snake and or even smelling the hippo's stinky breath.

Lisbon

Lisbon

Gunicho has great access to Portugal’s capital Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world. You can hop on a bus at the entrance of the parc which will take you directly to the centre of the wonderful city.

Cabo do Roca

Cabo de Roca

Sintra is well worth a visit - you shouldn’t miss out on a World Heritage Site, the westernmost tip of Europe, Cabo de Roca.  The cliff rises 140 metres about the Atlantic Ocean is adorned with a lighthouse and a tourist shop and there is also a monument at the cape.

Guincho

Cascais

The fashionable resort of Cascais is close by and has a bold but beautiful mix of modern and traditional architecture, excellent fish restaurants and classy boutiques.

Off Parc Activities

You will find sun, sand and watersports in abundance here.  Surfing and windsurfing is particularly good at Cascais because of the high waves in July and August. Why not have a go at kitesurfing which is also very popular in the area?

Just 1 km from the campsite you will find a gym, fishing spots and horse riding stables. And of course there are golfing facilities nearby, in fact you will find no less than 10 courses within close proximity.
