adventurous experiences

The Algarve is a luminous region with a thousand corners that are worth exploring. Some of them, for true adventurers:

  • Cape of San Vicente. Let's start with the icing on the cake, almost literally also if we take into account that it is the westernmost point of the Algarve. The sunsets are some of the best in the Iberian Peninsula, so go find a place and don't miss them.
  • Route of the Seven Hanging Valleys. The coast is full of cliffs from which to see unforgettable landscapes. This route, near Marinha beach, allows you to enjoy them in all their splendor.
  • Piedade Bridge. This rock formation is one of the most complete from our point of view. Whether it is to go down the cliff and touch the Atlantic or go kayaking, this site is one of the most impressive in the Algarve.
  • Benagil Cave. A postcard landscape under a rock dome. That is this natural temple that you can only access by boat or kayak
