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.

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:
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.

10-pin bowling complex with pool tables, etc at Caldas da Rainha. Only a 20 minute drive from the villa resorts on the coast.
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!
The capital city justifies at least one day-out with the kids…
