2 nights in the Nazare, Bathalha, Alcobaca area

I posted earlier with a full itinerary question but I'm hoping I can get a specific answer on this question. After 5 nights in Porto, we are driving to Coimbra, where we'll spend the better part of that day and one night. I know that we could base in Coimbra, our original plan, but to avoid backtracking (we're heading south to Evora next), which town would you recommend to be based in to see the central coast sites? Nazare is tempting since it's on the coast but it gets mixed reviews as a place to stay.

We visited Nazare and had lunch by the beach. Very touristy, and we were glad we weren’t staying there. There was an area above downtown , on. cliff, which we did not visit. We loved visiting the cathedral in Alcobaça but do not remember the town. Visited Bathalha too. Either would have been better than Nazare, the only place we didn’t like in Portugal.

Do not have a suggestion where to stay, but we really liked our visit to Alcobaca - elegant and simple beauty.
