Portugal is famous for its explorers...come create your own adventures in the Silver Coast!
Brave the crenelated walls walk!
With no hand or guard rails this is not for the faint hearted, but there is plenty of architecture, museums and shops to keep you occupied if you don't have a head for heights. And the Portuguese love a good party and Obidos is the perfect backdrop for festivals all year around what theme would you choose Chocolate, Medieval or Christmas?
World class surf awaits
And note the lack of crowds!
With the Atlantic coastline only 20 mins away there are plenty of options for surfing. Things do get more crowded when Kelly Slater and friends turns up though. Supertubos is on the annual Rip Curl Pro tour in October.
The largest oriental garden in Europe.
... but don't expect flowers - rather think if you were really really rich and could allow your creativity and love of sculpture to run riot in acres of manicured grounds! And less than 10 minutes from your quintanah at QBV.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
The Silver Coast has ideal conditions for SUP
Whether you are a flatwater lagoon beginner or advanced Atlantic surfer. Supxscape who have received TripAdvisors Certificate of Excellence for the past 5 years are based just 20 mins away.
Drink it or pick it!
Portugal doesn't just produce delicious award winning wine - it prices it so that you can afford to drink it! There are a number of quintas to visit in the area or come in September and help pick the grapes!
