  Portugal Golf - Costa Prata


Costa Prata Description

The coastline from Lisbon up to Porto makes up the Costa de Prata, the Silver Coast. If you like long sandy beaches and huge crashing Atlantic breakers then the Portugal coast line will suit you well. Long windswept sandy beaches and rugged Atlantic coast are its trademark; good for windsurfers, surfers and sun worshipers. The Silver Coast has a plethora of different types of resorts from quiet traditional fishing villages to busy family fun oriented destinations. Many of the pretty villages along the Silver Coast have retained a traditional Portuguese culture and way-of-life amongst some of the best European beaches. Coimbra is the main city of this area being within easy driving distance of the coast, and between comfortable distance from Lisbon and Porto as are some of Portugal's most impressive historical sights like the cathedrals around Batalha, Alcobaça and Fátima. A few of the coastal towns still retain their fishing industry and there are plenty of traditional seaside resorts as well as more modern resorts with casinos and family attractions.

Together with the Costa Verde around Porto and north up to the Spanish border, the Portugal coast line offers 600 kilometres of beach and surfing utopia. Many resorts are the focus for surfing competitions during the year and there are plenty of outfits offering surfing tuition for novices through to advanced skill levels. Ericeira and Peniche, both on the Silver Coast, are amongst the most famous surfing resorts in Portugal and the world. Many of the most popular beaches have sheltered areas for swimming and are patrolled by lifeguards. However, on this western Atlantic coastline the ocean can be pretty wild with a heavy undertow so some of the more out of the way beaches can be dangerous. The cleanliness of beaches has improved over recent years and there is now a longer list of Blue Flag rated beaches which mean these beaches should meet high standards for water quality and beach cleanliness.

There are three towns that do enjoy some protection and endeavour to maintain a fishing industry. These are Aveiro, Figueira da Foz and Nazaré. Inland the situation changes to a tourist’s haven with a wide choice of interesting and historic locations to visit.

The area economically is mainly reliant on small and medium size industries. However, not to be overlooked is the important agriculture industry and the production of wine. Local wood is the raw material supporting the production of furniture, building materials and paper pulp. In the region there is also non-metal ores such as clay, sand and limestone, all of which provide for by-product industries.
