Coastal Towns in Portugal

The same day we explored Obidos, we headed to the coast.  We visited several beautiful places along the coast, north of Lisbon.  We stopped in Peniche, and Nazar’e, Boca De Inferno and S’itio.  We were surprised to see a few surfers.  Then we learned that the waves in Nazare are famous!  They are some of the largest waves all around the world.  While we were there, they weren’t all that large though.  As you can see the water was a beautiful aqua color consistently, the towns were picturesque, and the beach reminded me of a Portuguese “Ocean City”.    All around the world, people are drawn to the ocean it seems.  I know we were.
