Portugal was recently again in the news as a top holiday destination

For those who prefer this year a cheaper holiday in conjunction with quality, comes to Portugal. Here you not only find the most beautiful beaches, but also very hospitable people.

A recent World Economic Forum report, released by the International Travel & Tourism Competitiveness, shows that Portugal is one of the 10 most hospitable countries. Portugal got the 7th place in the ranking. The attitude of the Portuguese population to the foreign tourist appears very friendly. Something we often hear from our guests and experienced ourselves as a resident of Portugal. When newcomers find their way to our B&B, there is always a Portuguese fellow villager who knows where the Casa of the ‘Holandaises’ is. Even when our guests in the evening had dinner and want to take a taxi. Without saying anything, they can take a seat and the cab driver knows unerringly that its clients are the guests of Casa Ceedina.

Add to the welcoming also that four of the five top destinations of Portugal are in "our area, central Portugal “ and your holiday is made. Nazaré, São Martinho do Porto, Ericeira and Sintra are all well worth visiting. In particular, the resorts Nazaré and São Martinho do Porto are very popular with our guests.

Sao Martinho do Porto

Lovely to relax or have a nice walk down to the lighthouse for a magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean or the bay. Also recommended to go surfing , sailing or canoeing. In the nice restaurants along the promenade you eat tasty a fish.

Nazaré

In the weekends and holidays the Portuguese also like to go their selves to Nazaré. The beaches are long, wide and clean, so a quiet spot is easily found. Eating a fish at the fish-drying place, go with the funicular to the upper town O Sitio or stroll along the boulevard. In Nazaré authentic and modernization goes hand in hand with each other to offer you as a tourist a pleasant time.

Sintra

Nature lovers travel to the mountains of Sintra which is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Visit the palaces that served previously as a retreat for the rich. Sintra has because it is surrounded by forest a really special atmosphere.

São Martinho do Porto

Seaside resort at shellshaped bay

São Martinho do Porto is a friendly village overlooking a famous shell shaped bay with a very narrow entrance from the sea. Because of this the water in the bay is very calm, which makes it ideal for a day at the beach with young children.

Although the number of fishermen is decreasing, they still catch fish and shellfish on a daily basis, which is often sold directly to the restaurants at the bay.

Every year many tourists from Portugal as well as from abroad visit the bay to swim, surf, sail or canoe, or to enjoy the sun on the beach. At night they go for a stroll on the promenade before they have dinner in one of the many restaurants.

Across the bay is Salir do Porto. It has a beach with a famous sand dune of almost 49 meters high. The beach is located near the river Tornada that flows into the São Martinho bay.

It is very nice to walk along the bay. Starting at the port you can walk either on the street or on the beach. From restaurant O Farol there is a boardwalk that takes you through the dunes, and gives you a good view on the variety of flora in the dunes. The boardwalk takes you across the river into Salir do Porto.

From the viewpoint Miradouro do Cruzeiro you have a great view over the bay, São Martinho do Porto, and the area. On a clear day you can even see Peniche and Nazaré.

The market is open every Tuesday to Sunday, offering you a wide range of vegetables, fruit and fish.

Praia do Salgado

Tranquil beach

Salgado beach is a vast beach located between São Martinho do Porto and Nazaré. Usually the sea is fairly rough, and the beach can be quite steep, so it's not the most suitable beach for children. It is rather a beach for people who are looking for a tranquil day at the beach.

The beach is easily accessible and the parking space is reasonable. Other facilities are limited. During high season part of the beach is supervised by the rescue team.

Part of the beach (towards Nazaré) is reserved for naturists.

São Martinho do Porto's bay

Place to be

São Martinho do Porto has always been ‘the place to be’ voor people from cities like Lisbon. Because of the specific location of the bay, the beach and the sea are accessible for everyone. That's why in summer this beach is also known as Praia das Crianças: children's beach.

You may find difficulties parking your car at São Martinho do Porto during summer holiday, but in the rest of the year that's no problem at all.

All facilities are there. During the summer months you can rent a beach tent, and there is a small children's playground. Highly recommended is the boardwalk that takes you through the dunes, and gives you a good view on the variety of flora in the dunes. The boardwalk takes you across the river into Salir do Porto.
