River beaches in Central Portugal
Portugal is a beautiful Country with the Atlantic Coast stretching the entire length, added to this, there are approx. 300 days of sunshine per year, so it is easy to understand why it is so popular.
But Portugal is so much more than a summer coastal holiday, if you move inland you will discover amazing architecture, monuments, culture, food, castles, warm friendly people and stunning scenery and natural reserves.
But if like us you want the best of both worlds, all the advantages of inland Portugal but to be able to swim on stunning beaches, then the Central region is for you.
Central Portugal is not as famous as any of its neighbouring regions, such as the Algarve, Alentejo, Lisbon or Porto. But this lesser well know region is rapidly becoming more and more popular with travellers who want more from a holiday.
The Silver Coast (the coastline in central Portugal) is being developed as a holiday location with stunning beaches, dramatic coastlines and secluded bays, but with far less tourists than the Algarve.
Move further inland and you will find some of the most amazing towns, cities and villages such as Tomar with the famous Convento do Cristo
