PORTUGAL

Sites & Adventures

There are so many places to see and adventurous things you can do on the Silver Coast.  Sites range from visiting old castle villages to modern city soccer stadiums.  During the warm months there are many water activities from jet skiing to boating, surfing, snorkeling, beach soccer and more.  But in the Winter months you have the additional excitement of the 100-foot wave (see documentary The Hundred Foot Wave) and watching the world's elite big wave surfers be towed out to sea to ride these mountains of water.  The natural beauty of the landscape is worthy of exploring in any way possible.  There are off road jeep tours, biking paths and hiking trails to explore and the Silver Coast is home of the largest sand dune in the world which is really fun (and hard) to climb!

Off-Road Jeep Tour

.

The off-road Jeep tour is the best way to see the area from remote locations, learn a lot about the city of Nazare and have an adrenaline blast (or a no-adrenaline tour if you prefer).  Rui (Owner of Naturumm Jeep Tours www.naturumm.pt)  is an amazing tour guide and story teller and is happy to cater your experience to your liking.  

Liga Portugal

Another fun adventure is to travel into Lisbon or Porto to watch a Liga Portugal football (soccer) game.  Hands down one of the most fun sporting events you’ll ever attend.

San Martino & Peniche

.

If you are interested in site seeing, San Martino and Peniche are both seaside towns stunning in their own way, less than an hour’s drive. 

Obidos & Sintra

Obidos and Sintra are both fairy-tale villages with mystical scenery and architecture.  Although they are both magical places to visit, Obidos is much closer to Nazare, less commercialized and crowded then Sintra yet still very impressive.
