We went to Portugal in March 2012 for a golf vacation. Just like what I wrote here last year regarding our Cascais Portugal Golf Vacation in Spring 2011 that we might go back to play golf in Portugal. Indeed, we went back to Portugal this Spring 2012.
We stayed again at Hotel Quinta da Marinha Resort located in Quinta da Marinha, Cascais, Portugal. Quinta da Marinha was about 25-30 kilometers west of Lisbon.
We played again at Quinta da Marinha Golf Course and Oitavos Dunes Natural Links Golf Course in Quinta da Marinha in Cascais and at the Atlantic Golf Course of Penha Longa Hotel Spa and Golf Resort in Sintra.
We played another golf course, the Royal Obidos Golf Course of Royal Obidos Spa and Golf Resort in Obidos, Vau. It was about 60 kilometers (via the A8 motorway) west coast of Lisbon.
Regarding food and restaurants, we ate at several restaurants in Cascais, namely, Restaurant Duke Pub, Mar do Inferno Restaurant, Caffe Italia or Pizza Italia, Monte Mar Restaurant, and Story Restaurant of Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel and Thalasso.
Restaurante Monte Mar and Story Restaurant were located in Quinta da Marinha while Duke Pub and Caffe Italia were located at the center of Cascais. Restaurante Mar do Inferno was located in Boca do Inferno which was about 10 minutes walk to the center of Cascais.
Another restaurant where we ate was Nau dos Corvos Restaurante which was located in Cabo Carvoeira in Peniche.
We definitely had great dinners at the restaurants that I mentioned. For one thing, we have been to some of those restaurants last year.
We were not again able to roam around Lisbon, so there is another possibility that we might go back to Portugal.
