Quinta dos Pernobes is situated in a region that offers many opportunities to be active!
In the vicinity of Quinta dos Pernobes there are no less than four beautiful golf courses. All of them are less than half an hour’s drive away! Teeing off with a view of the Atlantic Ocean: who wouldn’t want that? The four golf courses are Bom Sucesso, Praia D’El Rei, Royal Óbidos and West Cliffs.
Lagoa de Óbidos is one of the best spots for kitesurfing in Portugal with often ideal wind conditions and shallow water, which means that beginning surfers can stand almost anywhere to learn to control the kite. And all that just 15 minutes from our Quinta!
The surroundings of our Quinta are perfect for cycling and mountain biking. If you stay away from the through roads it is wonderfully quiet and the views are beautiful. Keep in mind that there are some steep hills here and there!
Our Quinta is located near the Atlantic coast between the coastal towns of Nazaré (north) and Baleal (south), two surf spots par excellence! At Baleal it is possible to learn wave surfing, whereas Nazaré with its spectacular waves is more the place to watch other experienced surfers. Unless, of course, you’re a pro yourself!
The area around our Quinta lends itself very well to lovely walks. There are many sand-, forest- and gravel paths where you hardly meet anyone and which take you through the most beautiful areas. There are many fruit- and vineyards in our region and often the paths run right through them.
Lagoa de Óbidos offers many possibilities for various water sports. Ideal for beginners and advanced due to the variable wind: in the morning it starts calm, in the afternoon the wind picks up. There is a sailing school (Escola de Vela da Lagoa), where material can be rented and lessons are given in sailing, canoeing, paddling and windsurfing.
