Pretty scenery but nothing spectacular. Had lunch at the only restaurant there, lots of locals eating there so you know that the food will be good and it was.

This is just the perfect scape. If you're into golf, then you'll love this spot. Great food. Never crowded. Great for a quiet vacation.

I had no idea that there was such a huge expanse of water so close to Obidos and the sand is beautiful and white, plenty of parking and I assume a place that would be extremely busy in full, peak summer, but there is plenty...More

The lagoon has trails nearly the whole way around. Find a place to start, near Bom Sucesso or Natadouro and enjoy walking along the still waters and watching locals fish.

The lagoon is probably the safest beach location I have ever visited with the family. A vast expanse of sand and shallow sea lagoons. Perfect for the kids to paddle/float on inflatables and generally enjoy the inlet waters. The only note of caution is the...More

This is a very nice place to go with the family. The salted water lagoon is quite, with less waves than the open sea (meters away, but really close). Windy, so great for practising some wind water sports (sailing, kitesurf,...).

This is very crowded place and it is a good thing. Because you can see nature in piece. Local fishermen, flamingos, small beaches. At the beginning of the lagoon, there are beautiful beaches, but it is also worth walking/driving around.

We loved Foz do Arelho at the mouth of the lagoon. Popular with the Portuguese on holiday this relaxed beach town was a good place to stay. Various watersports are available around the lagoon, we enjoyed canoeing and paddle boarding. It is possible to find...More

The beach (Foz do Arelho) is beautiful and is separated by the inlet/outlet of the lagoon. There's plenty of room even when it's busy and the views are lovely. However, if you're feeling energetic there's a spectacular view on the south west hill which gives...More

There is a water sports centre on the lagoon and other sports would be available at other beaches. The nature walks on the three sides of the lagoon could be spread over three days. Obidos takes half a day but could be... More
