Foz do Arelho & Obidos Lagoon
Where the lagoon and sea meet the sky...
Foz do Arelho is one of the most popular beaches of the Silver Coast of Portugal.
To the north, you will find Serra do Bouro, with several small villages where it is still possible to receive warm bread at your door every day and hear the church bells ringing. The village festivals remind us that traditions are still very much alive!
During the summer, locals and visitors alike head to Foz do Arelho beach or to the calm waters of Obidos Lagoon for a well-deserved rest. In other seasons, fishermen and water sports enthusiasts paint the waters with colour, while on the waterfront couples and families walk in the sun or enjoy fresh fish and seafood in one of the restaurant terraces overlooking the Atlantic.
This beautiful place offers a wonderful lifestyle, where you can enjoy small pleasures and the breathtaking views never tire.

For those who prefer the calm waters of Obidos lagoon, here you will see the traditional "bateira" boats dancing under the sun while flamingos, ducks, and other sea birds enjoy this area's natural surroundings. The walking trails along the lagoon are also perfect for calm bike rides, hiking or simply enjoying the view.
