Walking from Carcavelos Beach to Oeiras Marina (Cascais and Oeiras)
It’s a cloudy day at our last visit to Lisbon, but that didn’t stop us to walk along the Marginal Avenue of Cascais and Oeiras.
Starting at Carcavelos Beach, we walked in the direction of Moinho Beach and São Julião da Barra Fort. This monument of the 16th / 17th century, which was part of the defensive system of Tejo river estuary, is an excellent example of baroque military architecture and it controlled the movements of vessels in the estuary as well as the access to the port of Lisbon.
Starting at Carcavelos Beach, we walked in the direction of Moinho Beach and São Julião da Barra Fort.
Immediately before of Oeiras Marina, in Torre Beach, the families enjoyed a morning by the sea playing games and with leisure activities. The children run under the fresh morning, the adults rest in the sand and all together they go to baths in the calm sea that prevails on this coastal zone.
We descend to the Oeiras Marina, almost in maximum capacity, with smaller and larger recreational boats, aligned geometrically with each other. It’s time to reverse the direction of the march and return to the starting point of the walk. We have a lunch with friends waiting for us and my stomach was already ringing.
