Our good plans in Nazaré

Nazaré is a coastal town located in the central region of Portugal, on the Atlantic coast. It is a popular vacation spot for locals and tourists alike, especially because of its golden sandy beaches, impressive waves and historical sites.

The city is divided into two distinct parts: the Sítio, located on a cliff overlooking the ocean, and Nazaré Beach, located at the foot of the cliff. The Sítio is accessible via a funicular that offers a panoramic view of the city and the ocean.

Nazaré is famous for its giant waves, which sometimes reach more than 30 meters high and attract professional surfers from around the world. The waves are created by a combination of geographical and meteorological factors, including the underwater topography and strong winds.

In addition to its beaches and waves, Nazaré is home to several historical and cultural sites, such as the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Nazaré, the Fishing Museum and the Municipal Museum. The city is also known for its local cuisine, which includes dishes based on seafood and fresh fish. Un moment de détente, rendez-vous au nouveau centre de Thalasso situé sur la plage
