Estoril Coast is in the Lisbon Region of Portugal, sometimes known as Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon Coast.

The Estoril Coast extends from the Atlantic Ocean and the Tagus river estuary in the south and west up to the northern boundary of the parish of Cascais.

The area is near Lisbon and is served both by Lisbon’s international airport and by the Municipal Aerodrome of Cascais at Tires. Road and rail networks are excellent.
