Visit Nazaré in 2024

Nestled along the Silver Coast, Nazaré is a fishing village turned surfing Mecca. While the town's rich history and devotion to Our Lady of Nazaré give it a tranquil and timeless feel, the monstrous waves offer a contrasting thrill, particularly at the renowned Praia do Norte. Local fishermen in their traditional "traje a Nazareno" and women wearing seven skirts represent the cultural facets of Nazaré. Meanwhile, its unique underwater canyon just offshore amplifies ocean swells, creating some of the world's largest surfable waves and turning the spot into a playground for extreme surfers. With delicious seafood restaurants, a vibrant square, and a picturesque funicular connecting the beach to the Sitio, the town's higher district, Nazaré offers a variety of experiences that cater to a broad audience.
Whether you're an adrenaline junkie seeking the thrill of monster waves, a culture enthusiast fascinated by maritime traditions, or a foodie on the hunt for the freshest seafood, Nazaré promises an unforgettable experience.
