The Atlantic Coast Region
LET THE COAST GUIDE YOU
Travel along the Atlantic Coast and have an unforgettable experience, passing by fantastic beaches, visiting beautiful fishing villages full of traditions and tasting delicious fresh right out of the ocean.
Venture into the fishing grounds of Nazaré: the beach and the cliffs over the blue sea make this fishing village a unique destination. To enjoy and photograph the panoramic view of the village, climb up to a miradouro (viewpoint), where you can enjoy the typical white houses merging with the immense blue ocean. Aveiro is a charming city that captures the essence of a destination. It is crossed by a canal and is considered one of the most enchanting destinations in the country, thanks to its colourful Moliceiro boats (like a gondola) and buildings in pastel shades of Art Noveau.
Enjoy fantastic beaches, such as São Pedro de Moel, which is one of the most picturesque of the Portuguese coast with a unique charm and a perfect shell shape. Also Mira Beach, which is best known for its typical wooden haystacks built by fishermen in the area at the beginning of the 20th century. The medieval village of Óbidos is one of the most well-preserved of Portugal with an incredible castle on top of its hill. Within the walls, find a labyrinth of streets and white houses that enchant those who walk around, and where you can taste the famous Ginjinha (Cherry liqueur) in a little chocolate cup. While traveling along the Atlantic Coast, let yourself be carried away by the landscape and the beauty of the whole journey. Rich and charming, the Portuguese coast surprises everyone, sometimes with small villages, sometimes with beaches and heritage that will certainly stay in your memory.
