Despite Portugal being one of Europe’s most sought after holiday destinations, it is only recently that visitors have discovered the undoubted appeal of the Costa Prata (Silver Coast). With huge stretches of incredible sandy beaches covering the length of the Portuguese Silver Coast, its blossoming popularity is unsurprising.
The Silver Coast features everything you need for the perfect holiday. Please take some time out to enjoy the spectacular natural landscapes or the delightful Portuguese towns and villages that have remained unsullied by the incursions of the modern world. The Portuguese have every right to be proud of their efforts to preserve their rich cultural heritage and share it with international guests.
The weather on the Silver Coast is close to ideal. In the summer the temperature is around 27C, but that is tempered by cooling winds coming off the Atlantic. In winter the average drops to around 17C, which is one of the highest in Europe.
