Ribeira Beach, Cascais, Portugal

Ribeira Beach is located in the centre of Cascais, close to the main square. It is named after Ribeira de Vinhais (a stream) which flows into the ocean in this beach. It is mainly used for fishing activities and there are a small dock and pier. It is thus also known as "Fishermen's beach".
Although it isn't destined for bathing, the water quality is good and monitored regularly and the beach is supervised by a lifeguard during the bathing season. It is located about five minutes from the train station and can be crowded during the high season, particularly on weekends.
