Lisbon , with its springtime temperatures during the winter and cooling trade winds blowing in from the Atlantic in the summer, makes an ideal yachting destination. This is a legendary city with over twenty centuries of history, and has been the capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147. The old city with its tile covered building facades and narrow medieval streets is also known for its spectacular shopping, exciting nightlife, many museums and fine restaurants. Santo Amaro Dock is one of the liveliest spots of Lisbonís nightlife, with many restaurants, bars and outdoor cafes overlooking an area of the Marina between the Lisbon Yachting Association and the Doca Louca Kiosk. Lisbonís Estoril Coast beaches are known for their calm waters and fine golden sand. There are changing rooms, beach tents, restaurants and bars available on most beaches, with Carcavelos Beach being the most popular for surfing. The Cascais region has a number of small, picturesque fishing villages with cobblestone streets and boats bobbing on the water. The Cascais Marina and Cascais Bay have facilities for all types of water sports and many international competitions are held here. Conditions for wind surfing are ideal on Lisbonís beaches and there are over 70 officially recognized places for fishing along the coast from Cascais to Guincho.
