Beautiful beach for young and old. Ocean side or Lagoon side, you choose. The lagoon side is safe for kids and the ocean side is heavy and challenging

The area of the town of Óbidos is located on a hilltop, encircled by a fortified wall. Óbidos remains a well-preserved example of medieval architecture; its streets, squares, walls and its castle are a popular tourist destination.
Each July Óbidos castle hosts a traditional 'Medieval Market'. For two weeks the castle and the surrounding town recreate the spirit of medieval Europe.

Stunning, very natural, not over taken by the usual sun beds restaurants. Very friendly people good English speaking, clean, can be windy, and can be hilly, depending where you stay, we were at the far end of Foz, supermarket was 30 min walk, a car not essential as taxi was easily obtained.

Walking around the walls of the castle is definetly a must! However, I think you do not need to walk the whole wall because it is very long and sometimes it is a bit steep and the worst is that in most parts there is no "protection", so you are just walking there and there is no other wall on the side blocking you from falling. :D But definetly walk around a bit and find good photo spots and just enjoy the view! No entrance fee.

Had a brilliant morning of fun with a large group doing the paddle boarding lesson in the lagoon. Excellent value and great lesson from our very attentive coach. No problem for the younger and fitter but harder for the couple of slow coaches in our group.. Well worth doing. Other activities include wind Surfing cayaking and sailing.

It is a very interesting visit for art lovers. Lovely museum with a collection of the principal portuguese naturalists. The collection of Bordalo Pinheiro, The passion of Christ, is stunning, as well as some paintings of Malhoa, among others. The Museum is located in the beautiful Park of D. Carlos.

You pass through the Porta da Senhora on entry into the Obidos township. It is a spectacular artistic display and definitely worth some moments to ponder and look (if you can ignore the streams of tourists flowing through too).

Indoor Karting Caldas da Rainha is an Indoor Karting Track where you practice Karting sport. We have a 14 karts fleet (270cc) and 2 karts for children (90cc).IKCR has a track 315 meters long and 5 wide. Pilots can see in real time their lap time, in a monitor that is set after the finish line. The sports complex has a bar and room for business events and birthday parties (with inflatable). It is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 16pm to 2am and Sunday from 16pm to 12am . In August it is open every day.
I have been Go Carting many times and often the places and the carts are a bit rough. Not his place. Nice well maintained carts and well designed track. Being indoors it is a little more technical with tight corners but it still flows fine.
Had great fun with the family and very friendly and welcoming crew. If the clouds out this is the perfect option. Good in the evening too. This will be a regular stop.

You can choose to be part of this Kindom history and theme, or just feeling the atmosfere. Good music, some additional entertainment. How ?
You and your friends can select what to dress, a King a Priest, or any other from the Kindom of Obidos. It's just a few 3 euros this year to rent the custom, and make such a difference for the atmosphere...
You can enjoy to see the horse fights, the animation, the medieval music, the iron work to build the armors, all kind of medieval work is also represented there.
Must dinner there, pleanty of places to choose there, you don't need to include the meal from the ticket. Avoid Friday & Saturday where it normally gets full.
Take all your friends with you, and enjoy local wine, the location is fantastic, weather during the night is a little bit more cold there than in Lisbon ( 15 ~ 19ºC) but with a little bit of red wine it can help...
