– Golden Sands and Silvery Sea -
The Silver Coast has some of the best beaches in Europe and dozens of them carry the prestigious Blue Flag designation that recognises their cleanliness and natural beauty. The views here are breathtaking, with cliffs rising up out of golden sands, sheltered natural coves and the silvery sea that has given this region its name.
There are so many beaches here it is possible to get away from the crowds no matter what time of year it is. In July and August holidaymakers flock to the popular beaches at places like Foz do Arelho, Nazare, Peniche and Ericeira, but there are lots of other quieter spots along the coast,
