The Silver Coast of Portugal has managed to avoid the over development and commercialisation of Portugal’s other major tourist resorts. Its beauty and charm has therefore gone undiscovered amongst
visitors from Europe, but has always been popular with the Portuguese.
The soft, sandy beaches on the Atlantic coastline are cherished by the local population and provide welcome relief from the bustle of city life.
As those bustling resorts have become more crowded and expensive, the distinctiveness of the Silver Coast and all that it has to offer, stands in sharp relief, by offering a real slice of Portugal, superb stable weather and great facilities / amenities at affordable prices. It is not surprising
therefore; that we are now seeing large numbers of European visitors, and some from far beyond, who are discovering what the Portuguese have known all along.
The Apartment is located in Peniche and in comfortable striking distance to the IP-6 dual carriageway that connects with the A-8
motorway. This makes it easy and convenient to explore the whole area
by car by driving north via Alcobaça and Batalha en-route to other wellknown
attractions such as Fatima and Tomar. The best beach is a short 3 minute walk from the apartment and is the star feature of the property.
For Surfing enthusiasts, this stretch of Atlantic coastline has long been revered by the surfing community for the outstanding quality of its
waves. Peniche is home to “supertubos” with plenty of surf shops and amenities for professional and amateur surfers. The largest wave ever recorded, rose to 30 meters high near the charming fishing village of
Nazaré in 2011.
Obidos & Bombarral - If you were to travel north on the A8, for a few minutes, you would arrive at Obidos, the old agricultural town
Bombarral in the wine growing region north of Lourinha. The apartment
is in the centre of the resort and just a short walk to the beach. The rugged coastline is spectacular with vast stretches of golden sand, ideal for sunbathing, walking and exploring. Many more beautiful beaches are only a short drive away. Para-sailing, scuba diving, surfing and windsurfing are also available further along the coastline. There is also a
well-known salt water lagoon a short drive away where children can play
safely in the shallow waters.
Language & Food - Most Portuguese speak some English or French so
communication is easy. Do experience some of the finest Portuguese cuisine and wines in town and most particularly the fresh sea food, including lobster, squid, prawns, sea bass and many other varieties. One
of the great joys of visiting Portugal is that you can dine in most good places for under Euro 12.00€ per head for a 3-course meal. Most cafes will do light lunches that are the mainstay for the locals. The quick meals are usually for GBP £8.00 per head or less depending on what wine you would choose.
Praia Del Rey. If Golf is your thing, then you have a fantastic selection of 18-hole championship courses to choose from. Praia D'el Rey golf course, which was voted European Golf resort of the year 2007, is a 30
minute drive away and the Atlantic Golf course located in Peniche is about a 35-minute drive due south east from the apartment. In addition, we now have the superb new golfing complex of Bom Sucesso just 6 km
away from Praia D’el Rei which offers unparalleled access to a whole range of other sporting activities and some fine restaurants and diningclubs.
Praia Del Rey has an award winning 72 par golf course, rated as the best in Portugal and 15th in Europe. The course is part links and part
wooded. It is a good test for all handicap abilities. Excellent golf shop and club house, golf academy with PGA-qualified teachers. Driving range, putting green and bunker practice area. Minimum handicap required: Men 28 and Ladies 36. A handicap certificate is required when booking in at the club house.
São Martinho do Porto is a little Silver Coast gem that sits along a horse-shoe bay just a few kilometres north of the other beautiful resort
town of Foz do Arelho and just 10 km south of the ancient fishing village of Nazaré.
Nestled in between these two towns’ lies beautiful São Martinho do Porto. Protected from the Atlantic by a naturally formed, shell shaped bay, this delightful resort town offers white sand and calm blue waters to a small but ever growing number of sun seekers. We
can’t think of any reason why you would want to leave Sao Martinho, but it is an excellent base from which to explore the rest of the Silver
The Un World heritage town of Obidos is home to some beautifully preserved medieval buildings within the walled bastion that has a history going back to the Roman occupation of the area confirmed by
archaeological excavations that reveal the existence of a Roman city called Civitas near the hilltop on which the Obidos village and castle
were established. This Roman settlement is most certainly the mysterious Eburobrittium.
The Obidos Lagoon and Bird Sanctuary are of national importance (a
stunning location with elevated bird observatory and local bird list –
accessible by travelling south along the A8 motorway) The are 78
resident species; 46 visiting species and 40 Migrants species so it is a
most unusual treat for most. One other really popular use for the Obidos Lagoon, far removed from the sanctuary of course, are the many highoctane water sports it offers. You could spend the whole day water skiing, snorkelling, canoeing, paragliding or simply fishing quietly in some of the more quite sheltered spots along the lagoon. No fishing
licence is required so you simply choose your spot at random and enjoy the beautiful and stress-free environment around you. There are a number of little restaurants nestled among the trees along the shoreline
where you can get refreshments and also have lunch and dinner at superb low prices.
