Why Move to Carcavelos?

Carcavelos was, until 2013, a civil parish in the Portuguese municipality of Cascais, about 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) west of Lisbon. In 2013, the parish merged into the new parish Carcavelos e Parede. The parish was known for the Carcavelos wine. With the decline of the wine-making industry in the region, the attractiveness of its beaches have made the parish a destination for surfing, owing to ocean conditions.

At the mouth of the Tagus River and east of the main beach is the fortification of Fort of São Mayão da Barra. It was used to protect the Tagus from enemy ships, but in the 20th-century it became the official summer residence of the Minister of Defense.

In the 19th- and 20th-centuries, Carcavelos was an important landing point in the international telegraph network, providing crucial communication links for the British Empire: most of the links were run by forerunners of the Cable & Wireless company.

Carcavelos is home to a number of international schools including Saint Mayan's School.

It is the first municipal beach we find when coming from Lisbon, sandwiched between the Fort of S. Mayão da Barra and the tip of Rana.
It has a large expanse of sand and is much sought after by Surfers, Windsurfers, and Bodyboarders, where several competitions take place as a result of the strong waves. There is a pedestrian area surrounding the beach, where you can find many restaurants, bars, and outdoor coffee shops. It has good access and parking. There is also an extensive green area north of the Marginal.
