Beach: holiday on the Silver Coast
When it comes to beach life there is plenty of choice on the Costa da Prata, even with kids. São Martinho do Porto and Foz do Arelho are very suitable for smaller children. These beaches hardly have any waves so provide safe swimming. Besides at the beach of Salir do Porto the kids , and parents alike, can run down the high sand dunes! Would you would like something different, we can point you to one of our favorite spots at a wonderful little river with crystal clear waters where swimming is great too. Older kids and teenagers usually love to swim, jump and surf in the waves. And that´s exactly what the Silver Coast is also famous for! Just read on.
Surfing, body boarding and surf lessons at the Silver Coast
Most children as well as teenagers and adults really enjoy (learning) to surf and body board. The possibilities for these watersports are huge in the Costa de Prata with famous surfing spots like Foz do Arelho, Peniche and Nazaré around the corner. In the holiday period we organize (when numbers suffice) a weekly surfing clinic on the beach of Baleal. Have a great surfing session together with the other guests, under the professional guidance of a surfing school. Kids from about 6 years of age (or sometimes 5) can (depending on the child) already participate and usually love to share this experience with their parents and friends from our holiday park. Since we organize these surfing sessions we have uploaded many nice pictures on the Quinta Laranja facebook page. Have a look if you think this might be something for you! At the nearby Óbidos Lagoon in Foz do Arelho you can rent any gear and materials you need for windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and kayaking too. All really pleasant activities for the whole family!
