Foz do Arelho is a long beach that follows the water inland around the lagoa do Obidos (Lagoon of Obidos).
It is situated 8km form the city of caldas de Rainha in Central Portugal on what is known as the Silver coast. Foz do Arelho was always mainly known as a holiday resort for the Portuguese gentry possibly because of it’s long beaches that slightly land inwards create perfect spots for swimming even when the ocean water will not allow. We found it a very nice beach for parents as swimming conditions are slightly safer than the ‘currenty’ coastline and the large wide beaches give plenty of space to relax in a private atmosphere,
Foz do Arelho has some nice restaurants and café’s and a reasonable offer of pleasant accommodation.
They are a lot of activities around Foz do Arelho that we will be adding to our site soon!
