About the area
The striking, shell shaped bay of Sao Martinho is an impressive, natural formation that provides shelter from the rugged Atlantic waves that are so prized by the local surfing population. The waters here are warm and tranquil and an ideal way to cool off in the pleasant Portuguese sunshine. The restaurants around the Bay serve fantastic seafood, usually freshly caught that day and provide an authentic Portuguese experience for the casual diner. The bars and cafes that line the cobbled streets of the town are charming and friendly, with the locals priding themselves on providing a warm welcome to visitors.
Everything you need to enjoy your sublime holiday is available in Sao Martinho but that needn’t stop you experiencing what the surrounding area has to offer. Within easy reach of the bay are the surfing hot spots of Nazaré and Peniche as well as the medieval towns of Alcobaca and Obidos. Foz do D'Arelho is home to the magnificent Obidos lagoon which is famed for its natural beauty and watersports. Any or all of these destinations make a great day out, but you will want to return to lovely Sao Martinho do Porto.
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.
