What are we going to do today? A question that a lot of parents recognize. Let me think. It’s windy today, so we can’t go to the beach unless you want to be sandblasted. The sun isn’t shining either. But it’s hot. The perfect moment to discover the small city of Peniche. And that’s what we are going to do.
The trip starts
After a drive of 10 minutes and some roundabouts further, we arrive in Peniche. We drive through the center and take than a small street at the right. Immediately, we arrive at a small beach with an unexpected pretty view. Of course, I take some pictures. We see a lot of cars driving by and are wondering what to see further. We drive also a little bit further and arrive at ‘Papoa’. Wouldn’t call it a real village, it’s more a cliff. We are going to explore the cliff. And what an amazing walk we make there! Nice view, nice walk, perfect for my kids. Nice view of the ocean and not too exhausting. I discover here a walk that you may not miss when you are visiting Portugal. Also, my kids are very enthusiast.
After this, we drive further along the coastline of Peniche. We don’t drive too fast, so we can enjoy the beautiful views. Don’t worry, everybody is driving slowly, so that’s no problem. We arrive at ‘Cabo Carvoeiro’, the most Western point of Europe. You have a very nice view here. We can see the Berlengas Islands, fishing boats passing by, but most importantly, the waves of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Here you stand still for a moment to think about how beautiful life is.
Fishing Port of Peniche
Then we drive further to the fishing port of Peniche. The moment we arrive, there are a lot of people. Wondering why. It seems that we are there exactly at the moment that a lot of boats are departing for the Berlengas Islands. This explains the crowds. On the pier, you can walk until the end, which seems nice. But we leave this for others because we would like to have an icecream. We find a nice ‘gelateria’ and enjoy further our day.
