Surfing the wild Costa de Prata
It is said there is a wave somewhere on the Silver Coast every day of the year. The bends and twists of the coastline mean at least one beach is likely to be facing in the right direction on any given day, offering waves for everyone from beginners to the top pros. Summer waves are great for learners while in the winter the storms bring epic conditions that attract famous big wave surfers from all over the world.

Watersports on the Silver Coast
If it floats you’ll find somewhere to use it on the Costa de Prata (Silver Coast). It’s not just about surfing – every kind of watersport is catered for. The climate is mild and between the ocean and the calmer lagoon and inland waters there are perfect locations for sailing, canoeing, jet skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing and, of course, swimming.

Beach Rides and Forest Trails
One of the best ways of exploring the Silver Coast countryside is on the back of a horse. There are forest trails, tracks winding through hill country and long paths skirting the edge of the ocean and lagoon. Portugal has long and fine tradition of riding and horsemanship so if horses are your thing you’ll find yourself right at home on the Costa de Prata.
