Silver Coast - Portugal

Stretching from Lisbon to Fiqueira da Foz, Portugal's Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) is a gem of largely undiscovered beauty and gets its name from the effect of the sun on the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Unlike its more famous and populous cousin in the south of the country here you can discover pretty villages and a real Portuguese way-of-life amongst stunning coastal scenery fringed with the best beaches in Europe. Because much of this area of Portugal remains undiscovered by the mass tourism market you can guarantee a beach to yourself even in the height of the season if you are prepared to drive and walk a little way.

The Praia d'el Rey championship golf course and its luxurious accommodation and superb beach happily nestle side-by-side with the ancient, picturesque charm of medieval Óbidos whilst our accommodation at Foz do Arelho offers access to the beauty of the Óbidos lagoon and the lively bars and restaurants around its shores. Lisbon is an hour way and not to be missed. It is a beautiful city with a richly deserved reputation for the warmth of its welcome and is recognised as one of the most sophisticated capital cities.

Like most of Portugal the Silver Coast comprises mainly small towns and villages; 3 million of Portugal's population are in the two major cities of Lisbon and Porto with the remainder spread across the country. Consequently overcrowded roads and oppressive cities are not to be found. Small town and village life may move at a different pace to that which you are used to at home and adjusting to this healthy pace is part of the pleasure of being on holiday.

Visits to the fascinating towns and villages of this region are made on uncrowded roads and offer rich rewards. Fátima is an easy drive as are Alcobaça and Tomar. Eating out is both affordable and satisfying; there are top-class restaurants to sample as well as very reasonably priced eating-out. Tempting sea-food is a speciality and can be enjoyed with a chilled bottle of white from the region.
