Costa de Prata

Active holidays

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.

Do you want to do some laps on the track, and relax on the beach after that? That’s also possible at the Costa de Prata!

There is an outdoor track near Lourinhã, Bombarral, Batalha, and Leiria.
In Caldas da Rainha there is an indoor track.

Discover the Silver Coast by foot

OESTE, or the west, is an area in the centre of Portugal, and is part of the Costa de Prata or Silver Coast. This mainly green area knows bright light and a mild climate.

The nature invites you for a hike:
The landscape is very varied: ocean, woods, fields, lagoon, vineyards, rivers and bay, alternates with small white villages, ruines, windmills, white churches and typical hamlets. All of that in landscape with beautiful hills, from which you have stunning views.

There are lovely hiking possibilities in the nature park of Serras de Aire e de Candeeiros, or around the Lagoa de Óbidos. You can also get hiking routes at the tourist offices.

The area offers many marked footpaths, and there are possibilities for geocaching.

You can also check our page Hiking routes, we continuously add new routes on that page.

 

Lots of cycling possibilities

Although the Portuguese are not very keen cyclists, the number of cycling paths is increasing and the government is working on the promotion of cycling.

If you would like to explore the area by bicycle, you can contact for example Buka Bike, or Bikerent Silvercoast. You can pick up the bikes at their place, but they also deliver the bikes at your holiday rental.

At BikeIberia you can rent a bicycle for the whole of the Iberian peninsula. Please make sure you make your reservation at least 72 hours before rental date.
