Day trip Discover the Silver Coast of Portugal

Day trip with your family: Discover the Portuguese Silver Coast

We are pleased to present our day trip “Discover the Silver Coast of Portugal”. A great day trip for up to 7 people to discover part of the popular Silver Coast region in Portugal in a relaxed way. Experience and enjoy it together with your partner, friends or family.

Where is the Silver Coast region of Portugal located?

The Silver Coast region of Portugal stretches over a very large area, which we obviously cannot explore entirely during this trip. The exact size of the area is not entirely clear, but in general the Costa de Prata is said to extend from Torres Vedras (north of Lisbon) to the city of Leiria (other sources say as far as the city of Porto). The Silver Coast region does not only encompass the coastline, but also a large part of the interior.

Portugal's Silver Coast is not yet subject to mass tourism. We don't mind at all, but it is strange, since there is so much beauty to be seen in this region! Beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and stunning natural landscapes, picturesque spots with the charm of former fishing villages, historic buildings and so much more.

The Silver Coast region is, of course, too large to explore in a single day, so our your private driver will take you to special places near São Martinho do Porto / Salir do Porto that you might never visit during a beach holiday.

In the morning
The day trip includes:

Óbidos: the picturesque, medieval fortified town with its narrow, cobbled streets, charming white houses with traditional blue and yellow borders, baroque churches and sturdy castle that is now a hotel. Throughout the year, this town hosts various events, such as the chocolate festival, the opera festival and other music events. The most popular event is the medieval festival that takes place for several weeks during the summer and attracts a lot of people every year. If you are on holiday on the Silver Coast during the period of this medieval event, be sure to make time to experience it! Simply stunning! Contact us if you need a transfer for the medieval festival.


After your visit to Óbidos, you can give your feet some much-needed rest on the drive to Alcobaça. This city is home to the beautiful Cistercian Monastery with the largest church in Portugal. The entire complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church is imposing and contains the apotheosis of a morbid story. Would you like to visit the monastery? Then buy an entrance ticket. The kitchen fireplace in particular is a masterpiece.

Around the square at the monastery and the church, you will find many eateries for a lunch snack.

In the afternoon
Nazaré -helio-dilolwa

After visiting Alcobaça, we drive to the fishing village of Nazaré, which has become a mecca of the surfing world since McNamara set the world record by surfing a giant wave. Some sources mention a wave of more than 30 metres high. We will also visit the Sítio where the legend of Dom Fuas Roupinho lives on and where you can enjoy a beautiful, breathtaking view over the Atlantic Ocean from the south side of the city.
