PRAIA D’EL REY – Golf on the Silver Coast
The Silver Coast is one of the treasures of Portugal, a place that offers everything you would expect from a golfing holiday – except for the crowds. Framed by the protected landscape of the Serra de Montejunto and the raw beauty of the atlantic beaches, the Silver Coast is both the home of Portugal’s only marine nature reserve and a mecca for surfers and golf lovers alike.
Rich in points of interest, from archaeological sites to any number of heritage buildings and cultural landmarks, the region provides a fascinating window into the muli-tcoloured and absolutely unique history of Portugal.
The Silver Coast, or Costa de Prata, to give it its Portuguese name, is fast making a name for itself as one of Europe’s must-play destinations for golfers, with courses like Praia D’El Rey and the newer Royal Óbidos regularly featuring in lists of Europe’s top courses it is not hard to see why.
