Until fairly recently the Silver Coast was one of Portugal’s best-kept secrets, a place of hidden treasures known only to locals and a few hardy expats who strayed away from well-trodden areas like the Algarve in search of a quieter lifestyle. But over the last few years the charm of the Silver Coast – and its relatively low prices – has attracted more and more property buyers in search of a life in the sun; and brought increasing numbers of discerning tourists who prefer holidays away from the crowds.
Food & Wine
With the Atlantic on its doorstep, the Silver Coast is the place to come for seafood. The wines are great too – ranging from drinkable, inexpensive table wine to one of Portugal’s rarest and most expensive labels.
