Portugal's Atlantic coast stretches for nearly 700 kilometers on the entire eastern side of the country. The coast offers a rich variety of landscapes, cities and cultures. Each region on the coast has its own distinctive character and attracts with cliffs, sandy beaches and lots of nature.
In the past, the region was dominated by summer guests from Portugal. Despite the cooler sea temperatures, many people enjoy the popular summer beaches in summer and enjoy the great weather. Meanwhile, many international tourists have discovered the region for themselves. This includes mainly visitors with interests in surfing, fishing or hiking. A mass tourism as in the Algarve however does not exist.
Visiting many small maritime towns along the coast brings a little time travel into a strongly decelerated world. Below are a few examples.
An internationally undiscovered city is Esposende in the north of Portugal dar. The city is also compared with Lagos on the Algarve due to the beautiful sea channels. The landscape is similar to the Baltic Sea, but has a much warmer climate. Many investors are attracted to the region, as the summers are not quite as hot as in the south of Portugal and nature is as strong as in nothern Europe.
The beach town Nazaré is known worldwide for its extraordinary surfing conditions. Many world records have already been set here. The place itself is essentially characterized by its fishing traditions. The long, crescent-shaped beach is known for its beauty and pure white sandy beach.
A small town further south is the town of Sines. The city has a historic old town with a castle and a large port facility. The most famous son of the city is the sailor Vasco da Gama. Due to the strong refinery facilities, the city was formerly shunned by investors. Due to the very sustainable policy in the last decade, the environmental conditions around the city have clearly normalized. This brings the beautiful and traditional character of the city back to life.
These are just three examples of Portugal's Atlantic coast. We are happy to inform and advise you in every detail.
