WHY PRAIA D'EL REY?

Just to the north of Peniche is a string of superb sandy beaches including Praia D'El Rey.

Praia D’El Rey is a purpose-built resort situated on a fabulous stretch of Atlantic coastline in western Portugal. It is perhaps most famous for its championship golf course.  However, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy this location. With the beach at your fingertips, activities such as swimming, sailing or surfing are available, or you could choose to just relax. The resort is beautifully maintained and because it's spread over a wide area it never feels crowded or busy.

If you are willing to go further afield, the historic walled town of Obidos is 30 minutes by car, and Lisbon is just over an hour’s drive away. There are many fabulous beaches to explore too.

Location

Praia d'El Rey lies on the 'Silver Coast' between the fishing town of Peniche (15 km) and the beautiful walled village of Obidos (20 km). Lisbon is just under 100 km south and the drive from the airport takes little more than 1 hour.   

PDR is a resort designed to give you everything you need (activities, beach, places to eat) in one place.
The resort is built around the famous golf links, fringed by the Atlantic Ocean and a glorious, wild stretch of silver sands backed by dunes and cliffs. Covering an area of 230 hectares, the resort has a large footprint but you never feel over-crowded. 

Villa des Dunes is just 600m from the Golf Clubhouse and the nearest beach access is also walkable. The pool and terrace look across one of the golf course fairways.

The Local Area

For visitors who like to explore the area where they are staying, the Silver Coast provides a variety of exciting things to do and places to visit for all the family, offering a superb blend of beachescuisineculture and activities.

Whether you want to discover another superb beach, visit an historic town, taste the local wines, take the kids go-karting or take a boat trip to an island, there are many opportunities to get out and about. And you can book excursions and local visits via the concierge staff at Praia D'El Rey resort. 

LISBON

We highly recommend visiting Lisbon during your stay on the Silver Coast. However, taking a car into the city is an unecessary stress - there are some relaxing options to think about, all of which the local team at PDR can assist you with:

  • Drive to Obidos station and then take a train to the city
  • Hire a taxi there and back
  • Join an organised excursion to the city
  • Tag a city hotel stay on to the start or end of your visit 

FUN FOR THE KIDS

Don’t forget there’s a wealth of activities available on-site and activities which the resort staff will organise for you – see the Sports & Leisure tab. For fun days out, here's a few ideas:

Water parks
heading north up the coast, just beyond Nazaré, is Norpark, a family friendly water park with water slides for kids of all ages. Allow 45-60 minutes to drive there. For the little ones, there’s also a large play pool whilst more accomplished swimmers will enjoy the semi-Olympic-sized. To round off a relaxing day, facilities also include a hydro massage pool, giant Jacuzzi and restaurant.

On the outskirts of Peniche is Sportagua. Younger ones will love splashing around safely in the children’s pool (max depth 60cm). It’s a fun place to try a variety of water chutes working your way up to the Kamikaze slide! Restaurant on-site.

Go Karts
The Silver Coast villa resorts are in close proximity to two karting arenas – a morning’s excursion for dad and the boys? Resort staff can help you make a booking.

Dinokart go karting at Lourinha Portugal Silver Coast
Kiro-Karting go karting at Bombarral Portugal Silver Coast

Bowling
10-pin bowling complex with pool tables, etc at Caldas da Rainha. Only a 20 minute drive from the villa resorts on the coast.

Soft Play
Also at Caldas da Rainha, this play centre is an indoor facility with soft climbing area, a bouncy castle, soft mini football pitch and a separate soft play area for toddlers. Handy café for adults!

Lisbon Attractions
The capital city justifies at least one day-out with the kids…

  • Oceanario de Lisboa – the second largest oceanarium in the world, built around a pier on the Expo site
  • Zoological park
  • Football-crazy kids will love a visit to the arenas of Sporting Lisbon or Benfica
  • The toy museum at nearby Sintra is a fun excursion too, as is the Jurassic museum at Lourinha which includes the world's largest collection of dinosaur eggs.

RELIGIOUS SITES

  • Mafra and Fatima are the best-known but there are plenty to choose from
