To go through the entire region with the utmost detail would require a great length of text, for now, we give you a little taste of Algarve’s best, Lagos and Sagres.
Lagos is plentiful in golden beautiful beaches.
For those who enjoy a stunning panoramic view over the Atlantic, there is Ponta da Piedade, distinguished as the most beautiful beach in the world by the Huffington Post in 2014. This jaw-dropping rock formation is of unique form, with its outstanding cliffs and natural caves, a splendid work of nature, where the clear blue ocean encounters an untouched rocky shore.
The city itself is worth exploring, all the main points of its historic center are within walking distance. Also due to the city’s geographic location and rich naval history, its port is of today of great importance to the habitants. From the Marina de Lagos, arrives a great variety of fresh fish on a daily basis. The restaurants in the city therefore offer you the opportunity to enjoy delicious seafood and fish dishes.
Cape Sagres is the southwestern most tip of Continental Europe. The view over the Atlantic is mesmerizing and windswept. The cliffs are immense, a nature’s piece of art. To visit this unique place is a humbling experience.
Sagres is not only known for the promontory, it is the perfect place to enjoy a great variety of water sports or just soak up the sun.
Another sweeping view, the Saint Vincent Cape and its outstanding lighthouse make up for a dreamlike place. Outstanding cliffs looking over the clear waters of the Atlantic.
