Costa de Prata, or the Silver Coast, is the section of beaches between the Green and Lisbon coasts in Portugal, and includes the towns of Tomar, Alcobaça, Batalha, Nazaré, Óbidos, Aveiro, Fátima, Caldas da Rainha, Coimbra and Leiria. The turquoise waters and white sand on isolated beaches make this area one of Europe’s unspoiled gems getaways. After landing in your private charter jet, traverse through medieval towns, stroll through olive groves, visit nearby wineries and sunbathe on a deserted beach.

Where to Play

  • Winery tour: Hire a driver and head to the local wineries, like Quinta dos Loridos or Quinta do Sanguinhal, for an exclusive tour of the vineyards, old wine cellars and stone grape presses. Learn how the regional pros make the nectars sparkle and taste traditions that are centuries old.

  • Take a historical tour: The Silver Coast is as rich in history as it is in beauty. Hire a private guide and visit the medieval town of Óbidos before seeing the Cistercian Abbey of Santa Maria in Alcobaça, which was founded in 1152 and features the gothic tombs of King Pedro I and Inês de Castro. Make a pilgrimage to the Basilica and Capelinha das Aparições in Fátima, and then roam the halls of the royal castle in Leiria.

  • Play in the water: Hire a luxury yacht and cruise to the Berlengas Islands, a Biosphere Reserve that’s 7 miles off the coast of Cabo Carvoeiro. The main island and the archipelago of smaller granite islands are rich with endemic species of flora, nesting sea birds and crystal-clear, blue waters that are perfect for swimming and diving.
