Foz do Arelho Beach Silver Coast Portugal

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.

Photos of Foz do Arelho & Obidos Lagoon

The wooden walkways on the north shore of Foz do Arelho is one of the best places in the Silver Coast to marvel at this region's beautiful coastline. To the south, you can see Peniche, with the island of Baleal reaching out to the sea, the Berlengas archipelago on the western horizon, and to the north miles of sandy beaches nestled among green cliffs that extend all the way to Nazare. 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.
