Have you ever thought about how the best things in life are so simple? There are places in Portugal that have kept this simplicity, and left unchanged what makes them special.
The Silver Coast of Portugal is such a place, a land full of contrasts and in the Foz do Arelho they all come together in perfect harmony:
If you walk along the wooden walkways at the northern entrance to Foz do Arelho you can see the coastline where Obidos Lagoon meets the Atlantic Ocean. This beautiful location is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the breathtaking view of the sunset.
Mussel-fishermen fish by hand or with "bateiras", the traditional wooden boats used to preserve the lagoon's vegetation and wildlife. This is a place rich in biodiversity, where species such as royal ducks or flamingos can be spotted from the beach or at one of the bird watchpoints along Obidos Lagoon.
From small villages such as Nadadouro to the busy beachfront, don't be surprised if you are greeted with a warm "bom dia" and a smile at each location. The Portuguese's genuine hospitality is reflected in the simplest gestures of everyday life in Foz do Arelho.
This beautiful region of Portugal is also known for its freshness. In a delicate balance between the land and the sea, the traditional Portuguese food served at the many restaurants in Foz do Arelho offer simple ingredients cooked to perfection.
