Discover Algarves’s top 5 amazing summer destinations!


1. Sagres
Sagres, located at the westernmost coast of the Algarve, is the most wild and untamed destination. Windswept, bleak landscapes, steep cliffs, and turbulent waves distinguish this location. The town of Sagres is small, and there aren’t as many tourist attractions.
It is, nonetheless, an excellent location for surfing and relaxing. The town has two beaches, one on the south coast and one on the west coast, you should definitely pay a visit!

2. Ferragudo
Ferragudo is a charming fishing village near the city of Portimo. Walking about this traditional fishing town, with its white buildings stretching down to the river, is an experience in and of itself. However, Praia Grande is also a terrific area to unwind and enjoy watersports like windsurfing.
Enjoy this beautiful location while having the great memories ever!

3. Lagos and Ponta da Piedade
Lagos is the liveliest town in the western Algarve and, in our opinion, one of the greatest places to base yourself. It offers a variety of cafés and restaurants, as well as historical sites such as castle walls, churches, and the Forte da Ponta da Bandeira. Combine this with its stunning coastline, which is dotted with steep cliffs, caves, and grottoes, and you have one of the Algarve’s most scenic places.
Come and visit this amazing place, you won’t regret it!

4. Ria Formosa’s Island
The Ria Formosa, a 60-kilometer-long maze of lagoons, salinas (salt pans), marshes, barrier islands, and dunes along the central Algarve coast, is one of the best sites to explore in the Algarve.
This protected natural park, one of Portugal’s ’7 Natural Wonders,’ is also a wildlife haven.
This region of the Algarve is known for its Mediterranean Chameleons, bird viewing – particularly seasonal flamingos – and a wealth of seahorses, with dolphins frequently spotted further out.
It’s a breathtaking landscape, don’t miss this extraordinary experience!

5. Monchique
Hills rise gently between the Algarve coast and the neighboring region of Alentejo before becoming mountain ranges. The highest and most prominent is the Serra de Monchique, which offers a verdant playground far removed from the coastal vacation cities.
If you’re seeking for hiking paths and peaceful landscapes, the Algarve’s serra (mountain region) has some of the best active activities. Fóia, the region’s highest peak, rises to just over 900 meters and is accessible by car. On a clear day, one may see beautiful views of the Algarve and the Atlantic Ocean from here.
It’s a peaceful blessing being here!
