A new place discovered

It's been almost three years that we came to live in central Portugal (Costa de Prata). For us, this region was a conscious decision because there is so much to see and do. But after three years we still have not seen everything.

Our neighbour Bob, Englishman of origin, lives with his wife Sue here for over 7 years. He regularly walks along our house with his three dogs. We call the dogs the Three Musketeers because it shows a real team, one for all, all for one. Earlier, the neighbour told us that he regularly went with the dogs to São Pedro de Moel, half an hour from our house. Halfway through the seven kilometer long road you turn to the right towards Ponta Nova. We of course had already seen this sign a several times, but never went that road. So on a beautiful Saturday afternoon where we wanted to combine sportiness with pleasure, we took our running shoes and headed for Ponta Nova.

And it's really great. A wonderful beautiful forest where you can drive or walk through. When you completely ends the way, you arrive at the beach with a small beach bar where you can eat or drink

The beaches of São Pedro de Moel

Versatile seaside resort close to Leiria

São Pedro de Moel is a small sea resort, at about 20 kilometers from Leiria. The Portuguese people like to spend time on the beaches of this village. Also boardsurfers like come here and wait in the sea for the best waves to ride. On the sandy beach you can have a nice walk and enjoy the waves that break on the rocks around the village.

It's a picturesque village with great restaurants. On the highest rock you see the Penedo da Saudade lighthouse. The route to São Pedro de Moel takes you through the Pinhal de Leiria, a pine forest where in the last century resin was harvested.

Points of interest are Praia Velha, Praia da Concha, the Penedo da Saudade lighthouse and the Ribeira de Moel river north of the village. There are several parks in the pine forests. There is a beautiful walk through the area, it's about 7 kilometres long and takes you along sea, beaches, forest, parks, fountains and streams.
