The Lagoa de Óbidos lagoon is 17 kilometers afar from Óbidos. To get to it, you should take the road to Peniche and, in Amoreira, turn right towards the North. After crossing Vau, the road reaches the south part of the lagoon itself, a beautiful place covered in dense pines.

Just before reaching the lagoon, you will find an old fishing village, today turned into a modest summer village known as Aleida dos Pescadores, located next to the channel connecting the fresh water of the lagoon with the sea. Walking from here to the beach is a great experience.

Opposite the channel, you can distinguish Foz do Arelho, a charming and family-friendly summer village, albeit kind of overcrowded in July and August. Next to it begins Praia Rei Cortiço, which extends to Praia de Baleal, east of Peniche. This is an incredible area for windsurfing.
