This is a very nice place to go with the family. The salted water lagoon is quite, with less waves than the open sea (meters away, but really close). Windy, so great for practising some wind water sports (sailing, kitesurf,...).
This is very crowded place and it is a good thing. Because you can see nature in piece. Local fishermen, flamingos, small beaches. At the beginning of the lagoon, there are beautiful beaches, but it is also worth walking/driving around.
We loved Foz do Arelho at the mouth of the lagoon. Popular with the Portuguese on holiday this relaxed beach town was a good place to stay. Various watersports are available around the lagoon, we enjoyed canoeing and paddle boarding. It is possible to find...More
The beach (Foz do Arelho) is beautiful and is separated by the inlet/outlet of the lagoon. There's plenty of room even when it's busy and the views are lovely. However, if you're feeling energetic there's a spectacular view on the south west hill which gives...More

There is a water sports centre on the lagoon and other sports would be available at other beaches. The nature walks on the three sides of the lagoon could be spread over three days. Obidos takes half a day but could be longer if you stay for lunch. Alcobacar monastery can take a whole day and there are cafes in the square outside. Batalha monastery is worth a visit as it is a different type of building. Caldas da Rainha is interesting and the market is very good. I can't help with the baby side or with accommodation as we stayed in a windmill, not suitable for more than a couple, however you will find a wide choice on the internet. Hope this helps.
