Peniche Map Silver Coast | Portugal Visitor
Portugal Maps: Peniche Map
Peniche on the Atlantic coast is both a working fishing port and a resort in Estremadura on the Silver Coast (Costa de Prata) known for its sun, surf and easy-going atmosphere.
Its proximity to Óbidos, Caldas da Rainha, Nazaré, Ericeira and indeed Lisbon has made it a favorite with both families and the younger surf crowd over recent years.
Besides the sea and sun, attractions include Praça-forte de Peniche (Peniche Fortress), several small churches and the free Museu da Renda de Bilros de Peniche which is dedicated to the local craft of lace-making.
Peniche also provides access by ferry to Ilha Berlenga. Berlenga lies 10 km offshore, an almost-deserted island and biosphere, and an important habitat for nesting colonies of seabirds.
