Active holiday

For an active holiday or a just a sportive day

The Costa de Prata is sunny, has beautiful historic places and buildings, but also many possibilities for an active day.

The Atlantic Ocean offers great possibilities for activities on or in the water.  But don't worry, also on land or in the aire you can have a great and sporty day out.

Water fun for the whole family!

At the Costa de Prata you are never far from the sea if you want to swim. But a water park is of course also a great day out, especially for the kids.

There are 'Parques Aquáticos' in Peniche, Vieira de Leiria, and at the exit of the Grutas Mira d'Aire in the Serra de Aire e de Candeeiros.
