Along 150 kilometres of coastline, there are many high quality beaches to choose from. Dive into warm, clear waters and enjoy clean, open sands.
Experience the picturesque natural landscapes of Monte Clérigo, Arrifana, Castelejo, Salema and Burgau beaches on the Costa Vicentina, or explore the sea caves cut into the rocks of the Western Algarve, between Sagres and Faro.
In the east, experience being out on the ocean sailing between the islands of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
