Praia D'el Rey boasts its own fabulous stretch of long sandy beach, which is great for sunbathing and walking. Strong currents and a constant sea swell, however, make it unsuitable for swimming in areas without a life guard. The nearby Obidos lagoon and Peniche beach are much calmer and great for kids. There are several great spots for surfing and other water sports. South of the resort, the beaches of Baleal, Peniche and Supertubes offer superb surfing conditions. Board hire/lessons available.
