Algarve Coastal Trails

Follow the cliffs, beaches and turquoise ocean of Portugal’s Algarve Coast from Lagos to Cabo Sao Vincente. Secluded sandy beaches, white-washed fishing villages, excellent hotels and freshl caught seafood combine to delight you at every turn of the trail. 

The walk explores the beauty of the Algarve coast, where you can marvel at the weathered ochre-coloured cliffs, stroll barefoot along white sand beaches, birdwatch over blue lagoons, enjoy a freshly caught seafood feast overlooking picturesque harbours and wander the cobbled streets of Lagos, Sagres, and Salema. Abandoned fortresses along the way remind you of a time when this coast was ravaged by pirates. For one day your route takes you inland through rural villages and forests, where you can experience the true colours of Portugal.
