Estoril Coast lifestyle
Estoril Coast will keep shopaholics and bargain-hunters happy with everything from exclusive brand-label stores to hundreds of gift shops to investigate.
Estoril Coast offers a multitude of culinary delights, with everything from Indian and Japanese eateries to fast-food chains. It'd be a shame to miss out on true Portuguese food while you're here though and for the best. Fish and seafood are specialities and favourites include bacalhau - salted cod - char-grilled sardines and octopus rice. If you're feeling peckish, Estoril Coasts' old-fashioned tascas bars serve up tasty snacks like spicy cured sausage and hearty cabbage soup. Drinks-wise, help yourself to some fine Portuguese wines and shots of 'bica' - the much loved, super-strong espresso.
Estoril Coasts' offers a web of cobbled streets overflows with drinking-dens, jazz bars and music clubs pumping out everything from African to Latino beats. You'll also find authentic fado clubs - playing Portugal's evocative native music - as well as gourmet restaurants to settle in if you're set on quieter times.
