    Galamares is located in the very heart of the Sintra Cascais Natural Park, in the south-west corner of Portugal. Many visitors to the region opt to stay in the nearby town of Sintra, but Galamares is a different proposition altogether, being a small village that sits on the fringes of the action. These peaceful surroundings allow you close and easy access to the beaches, towns and all of the key attractions of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Things to do in Galamares, Portugal

    Two of the main lures for tourists visiting Galamares are beaches and golf. The beaches are those of the south-west corner of Portugal, and attract visitors of all ages with their great combinations of sand and surf. Galamares golf options are also numerous, with several good quality courses in the vicinity, and the weather to match.

    The entire local region is enveloped in the Sinta-Cascais Natural Park, which covers a total area of 145 square kilometres. There are a number of historical and natural attractions to be found within the park, which will also be of particular interest to nature lovers and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts.

    The village of Galamares is quiet, traditional and peaceful, with the vast majority of the population being locals rather than tourists. Amenities are basic, rather than numerous, but there are enough food shops to keep the majority of self-caterers happy, and visitors can always make the short trip into Sintra if they require extra supplies. For reasons such as this, the use of a hire car is strongly recommended when staying in the self-catering villas of Galamares.
