The Silver Coast of Portugal is a very child friendly destination with children being actively welcomed in restaurants, bars and attractions. Here are a few things we think they will love doing during your holiday!
The Oceanarium in Lisbon is very impressive and an incredibly popular visitor attraction for families. It is also easy to find and parking spaces are ample as it is located on the old Expo 98 site. It should take about an hour to get there from your Portugal Silver Coast Villa
This fairytale castle located in the middle of the river is like something from a Disney film. A very popular destination for my 6 year old niece and step daughter who love playing at princesses - I can't wait until the lad is old enough to be a knight templar!
There are a number of children's playgrounds in our area. There are two at São Martinho, one of which is on the beach, there is another by the primary school at Foz do Arelho and then there is the main one in Caldas da Rainha park which in Summer also has a boating lake.
The sailing club near Foz do Arelho takes advantage of the still and safe waters of the Obidos Lagoon to teach youngsters to canoe, sail or windsurf.
There are a number of water parks suitable for children of all ages in the area. We personally like the one at Nazaré which has a small paddling pool and slides perfect for toddlers and also larger faster slides for our 7 year old - and I won't lie, I enjoy them every bit as much as she does!
