Broadband is widely available in Portugal and is known as 'banda larga'. It is considered to function better than broadband services in the UK due to the fact that Portugal was one of the last countries to embrace broadband technology and thus has a system with newer design and technology. There are several service providers offering ADSL, fibre and wireless services in Portugal to the residential and the professional markets.

The small village of Foz do Arelho, 8km west of Caldas da Rainha, sits 1km back from a beautiful, sheltered lagoon beach, which is overlooked by a couple of cafes. The road continues a further 500m or so to another tremendous beach where river meets ocean, and here there's a promenade of bars and restaurants. It's not really overdeveloped - this is more a holiday-home place than a resort - and outside July and August you'll have the wide, white sands to yourself. On the lagoon itself, the Lagoa de Obidos, fishermen stand in the shallow waters next to their boats, attending to their nets.
