About the area
Retaining it's Portuguese charm and character, Sao Martinho do Porto is a remarkably picturesque seaside town. The town is built around the sheltered bay that provides for safe bathing away from the strong Atlantic currents. The bay also benefits from warmer waters thanks to to its sheltered location. There are life guards on the beach during the summer and the beach is cleaned most days showing off its beautiful iridescent silver sand which is where the area gets its name. Surrounding the bay there are numerous cafes and restaurants where the majority of the food on offer is typical Portuguese (superb seafood) though there is also a very good Italian & also a Swiss restaurant along the front of the bay too. In the surrounding area a number of excellent golf courses have been built, and more are planned.
Sao Martinho do Porto enjoys an idyllic climate that tends not to reach oppressive extremes of hot or cold. Daytime temperatures mid-summer tend to range between 26ºC and 34ºC. Mid-winter daytime temperatures typically range between 14ºC and 18ºC.
The Silver Coast has avoided the commercialisation and overdevelopment of Portugal’s foremost tourist resorts. It’s splendour has therefore gone undetected amongst tourists from Europe, but has always been popular with the Portuguese. The exceptional, sandy beaches on the Atlantic coastline are prized by the local population and offer welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of city life.
As well as fantastic beaches the region is also home to some superbly preserved medieval architecture, including a UNESCO world heritage site at Sintra. Small villages and towns like Alcobaca and Nazare have retained much of their rustic charm despite the ravages of time and it is a genuinely lovely experience to spend time exploring this part of the world.
