Nazaré

Portugal’s oldest fishing village is one of the most popular towns on the Silver Coast. Visitors have been coming to Nazaré for decades, from all over Portugal, because of its majestic beaches, vibrant night life and mouth watering restaurants. This beautiful seaside town nestled against majestic white cliffs has taken the world of big wave surfing by storm. In 2011, on Nazaré’s North Beach, Garrett McNamara broke the world record for the biggest wave ever surfed as he successfully caught a mammoth 98 foot wave. But it is not just big waves that have been bringing holiday makers to Nazaré for decades. The beach front is lined with lovely coffee shops, bars with live music and delicious fish restaurants. Nazaré hosts some of the Silver Coast’s biggest and best New Years events, with thousands of people on the beach bringing in the New Year to live music and an incredible fireworks display. Another reason Nazaré is incredibly popular is ‘Carnaval’, for 5 days work stops and a festive, party atmosphere takes over as young and old dress up in brightly coloured and hilarious outfits, build huge floats and parade around the street dancing and drinking to traditional Carnaval music. It is something to be seen and experienced by all. Overlooking Nazaré is the breath-taking Sitio. A portion of the village built on top of the sublime white cliffs features a beautiful church, quaint, traditional coffee shops and restaurants, the bull fighting ring and amazing views over the town and the ocean, all joined together by the funicular carriage that transports visitors up and down.

São Martinho do Porto

One of the real gems of the Silver Coast, this was the holiday destination of choice for the Portuguese royal family. This beautiful village with a resident population of just under 5000 people, is built around a magnificent shell shaped bay. The water here is warm and calm and the bay is sheltered from the wind which makes this a wonderful beach for families with small children. The lovely promenade is lined with interesting shops, bars and delicious fish restaurants. São Martinho do Porto effortlessly connects the old with the new, visitors can take the elevator up into the historic part of the town, stroll down the cobble stone streets past the stunning church and to the local farmers market that is open 7 days a week. Parents can browse beach front shops or enjoy a stunning view of the bay from one of the traditional coffee shops while their children build sand castles on the beach, have fun in the children’s play park or take a wonderful bike ride along the track that wraps around the bay, this is paradise. This is a small, exclusive and well kept village, everything is within 10-15 minutes walk and visitors here very rarely use their car, unless it is to go play a round at one of the nearby golf courses or visit one of the many monasteries, churches or castles in the area. For such a quaint and peaceful village São Martinho do Porto has a vibrant night life, with a number of beach front bars offering live entertainment on a regular basis. São Martinho also hosts some fantastic events throughout the year, from Sardine festivals, live concerts and a fantastic New Years Eve celebration.

The Obidos region is probably one of the most well known and most visited areas on the Silver Coast because of the majestic Obidos Castle.
