Fishing in Cascais


For many avid anglers, Lisbon and the surrounding waters are a not-to-miss fishing destination. The abundant marine life at the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea bring in big game fish like yellowfin tuna and blue marlin. The Sailo team strongly recommends going fishing in Cascais - a picturesque coastal town just 19 miles from Lisbon.
