Visiting Foz do Arelho

Foz do Arelho

To see ​Foz do Arelho is a beach about 10 km from Óbidos, Caldas da Rainha and S. Martinho do Porto.

​It’s a place where most of the people generally is passing by, because there’s not much lodging in the area: a three star Hotel, a camping and Inatel – a vacation club for portuguese workers.

Foz do Arelho combines perfectly a rough sea wit a calm lagoon. It’s your choice!

Foz do Arelho – Lagoon


Swimming, water sports, or just picking shells, the tranquility of the lagoon as an alternative to the adjacent sea, serves it all (and the water is warmer than the sea…).

​The bottom of the lagoon is somewhat irregular, so, those not knowing to swim must be very careful.

The sea

If the lagoon is too quiet for you, or surf or snowboard is your purpose, just go across the sand stripe, and the sea is there, always with a good surf… sometimes too much good.

​Check the flag or watch the other people prior to enter the water.
