Beaches / Sports
The Silver Coast is a mixture of little seaside villages and fishing towns, of which Figueira da Foz, Peniche and Nazare are just three examples. You will find all along the “Silver Coast” beautiful beaches some of them wild and very natural, others already well known and nicely developed but without the same mistakes which have been done in the south of Portugal. Most of the coastline is under natural protection and nothing can be developed there.
