Discover the Beauty of the River Guadiana in Algarve: Wildlife, Scenery, and Heritage
If you're looking for beautiful scenery in the Algarve, head to the River Guadiana. This river runs along the northeastern border of the region and offers stunning views as you make your way towards the southern coastline. Take a boat up the river to Alcoutim and discover the various border routes of the Guadiana Valley. Along the way, you'll enjoy excellent views of tidal mills and Mediterranean scrublands.
Make sure to take some time to explore the natural habitat of a wide range of fauna and flora in this protected area. Glide through areas of pastureland, past cultivated fields, and ancient remains from the Neolithic period to the times of the Roman and Moorish occupations. Stop in small towns with an ancient and well-preserved heritage for a different way of life, far removed from the cosmopolitan beaches of the coast.
Don't miss the chance to observe migratory birds like storks and pink clouds of flamingos as they fly through the sky. Visit The Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, an area popular with many migratory birds.
Finally, explore the breathtaking landscape of the Castro Marim saltpans, with their white hills of salt amidst the green of the fields and the blue of the river. Plan your trip to the River Guadiana today for an unforgettable experience in the Algarve!
