Named after a little chapel overlooking the beach that was built to honour Our Lady of Conceicao, this beach, located in the centre of Cascais between the upmarket Albatroz Seafront Hotel and the rather splendid Chalet Faial, is one of the busiest in the area due to its fabulous position. Despite its proximity to the resort's fishing port, the beach has been awarded Blue Flag status such is the cleanliness and sustainability of the immediate environment. Its layout is also favourable for those with limited mobility. The calm waters offer favourable conditions for water sports, and there a number of good restaurants and cafes located practically on the sand.
- Beaches: "The beach marks the beginning of the seafront promenade, which stretches for 3km east all the way to S. Joao do Estoril – one of the most pleasant walks in the region!"
- Best for Beaches Because: Its central location and easy accessibility from the town's railway station makes Praia do Conceicao an obvious choice for residents and day-trippers.
