This area was the holiday destination of choice for the Portuguese royal family and continues to be the holiday destination of choice for Portuguese families from Lisbon, Porto and the surrounding areas. The coastline is untouched. Building regulations on The Silver Coast are strict and as a result beaches, forests, natural parks and lagoons are protected from over-development.
