Location description from owner

The Golden Eagle golf course is also very popular and it is located in a very peaceful setting approximately 40 minutes drive from Sao Martinho.

Locality

Given the location of Sao Martinho do Porto it suits those wanting to relax on a beach as well as those wanting to soak up some of the wide ranging cultural heritage of the Silver Coast. There is a vast wealth of history and culture in the area and there are many beautiful and picturesque towns too. Below are just some of the many suggestions for a day out in the Silver Coast:

The neighbouring town Nazaré, a charming old fishing town is 10km away.

The beautiful medieval borough Óbidos (20 km),

Foz D'Arelho with the stunning Obidos Lagoon is 10km.

The historic town Alcobaca with the famous monastery is 15km.

Peniche, famous for surfing and the renowned 'supertubos' wave is 40km. From here you can catch a boat to the Berlengas Islands - a nature reserve.

Lisbon is 80km.

The UNESCO world heritage site Sintra with 2 palaces is 90km.

The Gothic city Santarém and the museum house of Alpiarça is 70 km

The palace, the church and the convent of Mafra is 90 km.

Also visit the basilica and the convent of Batalha from the 14th century. The pilgrimage destination Fátima (50 km), the castles of Leiria and Porto do Mos. The University City Coïmbra (100 km), the convent of the tempeliers in Tomar, etc.

Beaches

There are huge stretches of magnificent beaches the length of Portugal; you will have no shortage of beautiful beaches to choose from during your stay. That said, please be aware that there are very powerful waves and currents along the Atlantic coast so it is best to be careful when choosing a beach to spend your day. The beach around Sao Martinho is very safe as the waters are sheltered and calm, the same is true of the beaches around the Obidos lagoon that is located 15-minutes drive south of Sao Martinho. Particularly for families with young children we recommend that guests stick to these safe-bathing areas.

Between Sao Martinho and Nazaré (to the North) there is a stretch of beach called Salgado beach. There are very powerful and dangerous currents in the waters along this stretch of beach so we recommend that you avoid this beach all together.

When going into the waters along the coast of Portugal be aware of the coloured flag system that indicates how safe the waters are for bathing:

A green flag indicates that it is safe to swim in the waters
A yellow flag indicates that bathers should be cautious.
A red flag indicates that swimming is forbidden
A blue and white flag indicates that the beach is temporarily without a lifeguard.

Sao Martinho do Porto

The beautiful town of Sao Martinho Do Porto is built around a beautiful bay naturally shaped by the sea to form a perfect shell. Making the most of the view of the bay a string of cafes and restaurants have emerged offering a diverse range of food and drink.

The majority of the restaurants you'll come across will be traditional Portuguese restaurants specialising in Seafood. Portugal has a superb tradition for fresh fish and shellfish and typically the dishes are reasonably simple making the fresh seafood the feature of the meal. Many traditional restaurants will serve dishes known as Cataplanas. These dishes vary considerably depending on the restaurant but they are delicious and include a variety of seafood cooked with onions and tomatoes to make an extremely tasty casserole. Another traditional dish to look out for is pork with clams.

At lunchtime a number of restaurants serve a Prato do dia, this is the 'dish of the day' but it may be up to three courses. These dishes are typically very good value.

Of particular note are the following restaurants:

A CASA – serves typical Portuguese food with an emphasis on good quality, fresh seafood.

O'FAROL - this restaurant enjoys superb views over the bay. Serving typical Portuguese food, this restaurant is excellent for seafood.

CARVALHO – a good Portuguese menu with some nice dishes. Typically prices are reasonable and the food is good. Well worth visiting for a lunch in particular.

PORTOBELLO - an Italian restaurant that offers good food at reasonable prices. With a wide range on offer, the pizzas in particular are excellent.

ROYAL MARINHO - a Swiss chef offers a diverse range of dishes which vary throughout the year. Dishes can include Swiss fondue in the winter and French classics such as Chateaubriand.

PESCA NO PRATO - An excellent choice of restaurant for traditional Portuguese food with an emphasis on fresh seafood.

Although alcohol is served in all of the many cafes surrounding the bay of Sao Martinho, the two specialist bars in Sao Martinho are Pato Bravo and The Status Bar. Both bars offer nice environments to enjoy a drink and they continue serving until the early morning. Pato Bravo has a beautiful central view over the bay. The Status Bar is found next to the Atlantico hotel just behind the children's play area on the bay.

Also well worth a visit is the Hotel Palace do Capitao, a stunning historic building overlooking the bay. Enjoy afternoon tea in a beautiful environment.

Supermarkets

For a large supermarket get on the main road out of Sao Martinho (R. Gen. Carmona), Just before you get to the junction to join the N242 (the road you would use to get to Nazare) you will see a large supermarket (Intermarché) on your right-hand side. It's about 10 mins walk from the centre of Sao Martinho Do Porto.
