Hit the road with this self-drive tour along the West Algarve! A route designed by locals, to show you the best bits of the region.
Contemplate the horizon from the Vicentina Coast’s dramatic cliffs; visit the green hills of Monchique; check must-see places, like Ponta da Piedade; enjoy the nature in Ria de Alvor; relish with the fresh seafood and the fine Portuguese wines!
The tour is based in Lagos, a historical and cosmopolitan coastal city.
The old town is filled with small boutiques, restaurants, and a wealth of heritage and culture sites. A beautiful wall and a Fort border the waterfront, facing a large bay and the Meia Praia Beach’s delicate sands.
From Lagos, you’ll get to visit the Vicentina Coast, Sagres, and the cliffs of Cape S. Vicent, the most south-westerly point in Portugal and in Europe. The cliffs are a vertiginous 60 meters high, dropping down into the furious spray of the waves.
On your way, a highlight for the unique scenery of Ponta da Piedade, a true postcard picture of your memorable holidays.
The beaches of Arrifana and Odeceixe hide endless dunes, surrounded by tiny wildflowers, where the only sounds come from the waves, the seagulls, and the salty winds singing.
Visit Monchique, nestled in the folds of the hills. Nearby is the highest peak of the Algarve, Fóia, from where you have a view up to Alentejo.
To complete your experience, make sure you don’t miss the exquisite regional dishes, from the sea and from the land, accompanied by excellent Portuguese wines.
