Among these amazing beaches is Vale Furado, famous for its high cliffs in shades of yellows and reds, and Paredes da Vitória, another pristine beach with fabulous restaurants serving the freshest seafood and fish.
Continuing North, there are several other beaches, such as Pedra do Ouro and Polvoeira, joined by a wooden walkway along the coast that is perfect for anyone who likes to hike surrounded by fresh air.
You can also cycle along the Estrada Atlântica, which reaches all the way up to the charming beach village of São Pedro de Moel, set between the royal pine forest of Pinhal de Leiria and the Atlantic Ocean. For centuries, this charming seaside village has been a popular beach destination for the Portuguese nobility and bourgeois to enjoy their summer holidays and weekend getaways. The beautiful holiday homes around the beach are famous for their traditional architecture and dark green or brown wooden railings on the balconies that overlook the sea.
The locals flock to this amazing coastline all year round to appreciate the natural landscape and laid-back lifestyle!
