Daytrip to Nazaré at the Atlantic coast
Nazare Is a small town on the Atlantic coast. It is one of the most popular seaside resorts in the area. The old village, the Sítio lies on top of the cliff and can be reached with a special tram. The village is famous for its legend about an intervention by the Virgin Mary, which saved the life of a Portuguese knight in the 12th century.
This coast line is one of the most beautiful in Portugal. It has long sandy beaches and mostly they are very quiet. Even in the summer you can find quiet spots. It is also the region for record-breaking surfers. Waves can get as high as 20 meters. For regular swimmers the Atlantic sea is dangerous. So the safest place to swim would be in a bay where you are protected from the strong currents and waves. But the coastal area is always spectacular and beautiful.
We will pick you up in the morning and we will return somewhere in the late afternoon or evening.
How you would like to spend the day is up to you. We could discover the village and seaside togehter. But if you prefer to spend the day (or part of it) by yourself, that would be an option too. You can decide when the time comes.
Walk nr. 3: Dornes at the lake
The village of Dornes lies on a peninsula in the lake of Castelo do Bode. The village is famous for its distinctive Templar Tower and processions. The walk has some stunning views of the lake and Dornes. We begin and end our walk at the village so there is time to see the famous tower.
This is a very easy and relaxing walk. We have our lunch enjoying the view of the lake. And of course there is time for a cup of coffee in the village or a town a few miles away.
