Nightlife on the Silver Coast
– party the night away
Nothing much happens before 10 or 11 pm in the evening and things only really get lively between midnight and 4am. Most bars and clubs are open until the small hours, and some go through until dawn, especially in the summer months when it seems no one wants the party to end.
Bars and clubs
The bigger cities like Torres Vedras, Peniche, Caldas da Rainha, Leiria, Marinha Grande and Alcobaça all have a lively bar and club scene in their centres, and many offer live music or DJs to add to the entertainment. This is on top of the many music festivals that take place throughout the year in the Silver Coast region.
In the summer Foz do Arelho has a temporary club that is set up right on the beach and this goes through the night. If the dancing gets too much there are cafés all along the seafront for chilling with a drink. Further down the coast the surfing hot-spot of Ericeira also has no shortage of clubs and bars catering for the surfers who flock to the town for its awesome waves.
