The small village of Foz do Arelho is an area of great natural beauty, with the Obidos Lagoon curling alongside it to meet the sea. It is a quiet, peaceful and relatively undiscovered location, perfect for relaxation. There are plenty of activities to try: sailing, SUP or kayaking in the lagoon and surfing in the Atlantic Ocean are on offer here, and if you are willing to go a little further afield, the historic castle town of Obidos is 15 minutes away by car and Lisbon is just over an hour’s drive.

The Local Area

Foz is an undiscovered gem combining the natural beauty of Obidos Lagoon and a charming authenticity - this sweet Portuguese seaside village couldn't be any different from the Algarve.

The location of Foz at the mouth of the lagoon creates a quite spectacular scene of water and sand. Whilst the Atlantic beaches are dramatic, they give way to calm, child-friendly waters in the lagoon. The photos speak for themselves!

Beach Life

The beach at Foz has Blue Flag status. It's easy to find your own space and you'll certainly feel this is an authentically-Portuguese seaside resort, undiscovered by mass market tourism. The Atlantic water is relatively cool so a wetsuit is a good idea. The shallow waters of the lagoon are warm though.

Sailing School

The lagoon is of course a perfect spot to practise your sailing skills or try it for the first time. Head to Escola de Vela da Lagoa. In fact, windsurf, kitesurf, catamaran, optimist, canoeing, wakeboard and water ski.

Surf School

The beach at Foz is pounded by Atlantic waves although in summer the wave height is typically only 1 metre. The beach is lifeguarded in sumer. Families with younger kids 'into' surfing often head down to Baleal where the waves are better for beginners. The surf school - Foz Camp - are a fountain of knowledge regarding local currents and conditions.

Village shops include 3 mini supermarkets, pharmacy, pastelaria for fresh bread and pastries, bank with ATM, tourist office, florist and fishing tackle shop (fishing is very popular amongst the locals).

Service: We thought the local Managing Agents in Portugal cut a lot of corners - we can't fault Alternative Portugal in the UK though

Product: Villa was very nice but could have been cleaner. We were told it was not overlooked but it was right next to the road with a low wall .However. location was superb !

Service: Justin from Alternative Portugal provided me with excellent advice and knowledge when booking my holiday. Foz do Arelho was situated by a beautiful lagoon and the restaurants served the most wonderful fish, especially the golden bream. The villa was set in a very quiet part and the views and sunset were fantastic. We definitely would go back again. It was a beautiful part of Portugal.

Product: The villa was clean and modern with views towards the lagoon. It was situated in a quiet part of Foz do Arelho with easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants.
