Nazare beach Portugal traditional Portuguese fishing boats

From Serra da Pescaria to Nazare...

Discover Portugal's oldest fishing village

The fishing village of Nazare is one of the best known in Portugal and it is no wonder! 

Here you will find several aspects that make this land truly unique. From the fish dried naturally on wooden rakes along the sand to the traditional seven skirts worn by the beach women, there are countless examples of how the people of Nazare have maintained their authenticity and genuine pride in local traditions. 

With so much to see and do, Nazare is a perfect location for permanent living or as a second home to enjoy holidays in one of the world's sunniest places! 

Walking along the beach is a remarkable sensorial experience at any time of the year, with the smell of the ocean, the crashing waves on the shore and the sound of seagulls flying over the lighthouse and fort of St. Michael the Archangel. 
In the winter, the giant waves of the North Canyon are also an eye-catcher, bringing surfers from all over the world to venture out into the surf or simply watch in awe as Mother Nature confirms its special connection to this magical place.
