How to find the end of Europe

How to find the end of Europe

VISITING SAGRES

Having visited many parts of Portugal, and want  to visit somewhere different for a change our suggestion is visit the end of Europe.  This article will help you to discover the southwestern corner of Europe and a small town called Sagres.  Sagres is a small and unique fishing village located on the western side of the Algarve.  Because the place is remote provides this rea with a typical atmosphere and some activities and sights that are not found in other regions of the Algarve.

Its  has stunning cliffs, gorgeous beaches, and choppy seas.  You do not have to worry about accommodation are holiday rental  Villas  the  Sagares apartment are plentiful there is even a 5 star hotel nearby.  This are is for those visitors who enjoy getting nature and away from the comfort of city life.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT SAGRES:

The main attraction about this region is its remoteness. Even though tourist visit this region nothing has been altered. It is highly recommended that you book your Algarve Apartment or holiday rental villa beforehand since there is limited accommodation in the town.  The beaches here are different from the rest of Algarve, as they face on the western direction onto the Atlantic. The huge Atlantic waves appear make it ideal for surfing.

Sagres is a small town, not many restaurants, cafes or bars are found here.  The few though offer affordable food to eat while you explore the area.  Its positioning makes it experience the strong winds that build up the Atlantic Ocean. So in winter time bring warm clothing  There is an endless sometimes warm breeze but fortunately some of the beaches face the eastern side are sheltered and ideal for sun worshipers.

EXPECTATIONS

During summer, Sagres beaches are full of tourist and locals but it never feels crowded compared to other beaches in the Algarve.  During other quieter seasons  the town is quiet and almost deserted, though that is the beauty of it.  During winter only those who can bare the cold visit or experienced surfers who want to ride on the strongest waves.

HOW TO GET THERE:

It is hard to get public transport in this region; there are regular bus services to Lagos but not many.  The nearest train station is in Lagos where you can get a train to Faro.  To get the most of this place its advisable to have a rental car, which you can move in with ease.  If you decide to locate in a holiday rental in Lagos or a villa to rent in Praia da Luz the rental car will allow you move with ease.  We recommend Marina rentacar in Lagos. Tell Jessica or Daniel  Goholidaylets sent you.

A pre-booked taxi transfer from Faro airport to Sagres will cost almost the same as three days car hire, so get a car from the airport before visiting Sagres.

There is a lot of other things you can do in Sagres Cabo de Sao being the best attraction. The area being remote will give that feeling of wanting to know more about it.

We like Alvor as a holiday rental location one of the reasons is the Alvor boardwalk is stretched across the sand dunes and moves toward the beach. It is located in area that the Portuguese Authorities have declared a National Reserve.  Here you will find the kite surfers and you are able to see the kites sailing over the bay which is a beautiful scene to watch.  It is well worth an hour or two stroll around here. You can do some jogging while breathing fresh air from the ocean.  Some excellent Alvor Villas and apartment in Alvor are located near the boardwalk. You can use the keyword Alvor apartments also to search for accommodation.

PRAIA DA ROCHA BOARDWALK:

Just up the road you will come across the Praia da Roche Boardwalk. This walk runs on the edge of the beach and is flanked by  restaurant and bars  in Praia da Rocha.  Here the average walk time is between an hour and half.  This is a nice place to take a walk as you can stop over for a drink or grab some lunch in any of the beach restaurants located along.  It ends on its western location at Portimao Marina where you can sit and have a relaxing coffee.  We have some excellent apartment in Praia da Rocha indeed we have great apartments Algarve and Algarve Villas to search for throughout the Algarve

CARVOEIRO CLIFF WALK:

 

This is a place that will take you breath away apart from the scenery if you get a breeze from the sea in the morning a walk here will truly wake you up. This walk takes you along the cliff tops and gives you a spectacular views of the coast, you can also view the sinkholes and ocean scenes.  Have  your camera to hand as you can take pics of the beautiful cliffs and take some drinking water since there are no shops around this area. Just take the pics of the cliffs but not go too near.  A morning walk is good for this place. Once again Carvoeiro is excellent location for  holiday villas.  Carvoeiro villas are wonderful, apartments in Carvoeiro are located in the centre of town.

CALDAS DE MONCHIQUE PICNIC:

 

The walk starts in the village of Caldas and makes its way up to Monchique.  You follow the stream along the way. This is a perfect place for a picnic on the old stones tables that are along the way.  You can take the walk up the small stream.  This walk is based in the area of the town of Monchique which is at a high altitude over looking the Algarve coastline.  It is a wonderful area to explore and local free maps can be had from various locations.    Bring a light jacket as at times Monchique s temperature can be lower than the coastline.  If you have rented a villa in Lagos, or apartment in Praia da Luz it is quite easy to get to Caldas.

SALGADOS WALK:
