The glistening ocean has long formed the center of the fishing industry in Cascais. Today, fishing is still present, but it's the tourism industry that has made this one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. With the "Seven Seven" bus service and excellent transport links to the capital, Cascais is easy to navigate around and commute from. If you choose to work in the tourist industry you'll need a good understanding of English, Portuguese and Spanish to cater to the main tourist demographic, but the proximity to the capital means there are opportunities within education, where foreign teachers are in demand, in business, with links to major companies, and in tourism, where there are a variety of jobs available at the many hotels. In and around Cascais, there is a surprising range of museums to explore and for the more active among you, excellent tennis, golf, and water sports facilities to discover. Cascais has a thriving nightlife which includes the popular casino in Estoril and of course, a variety of international cuisines (and budgets) are catered for.
