It’s the most well-known destination in Portugal for summer holidays, due to its temperate waters, golden sand beaches and ever mild climate. But there’s more about the former Kingdom of Algarves. Costa Vicentina – that extends from Odeceixe to Burgau – covers a sparsely populated area where you can watch thousands of migratory birds, as well as the existence of a large variety of endemic species of flora. Its beaches, without the pressure of the Mediterranean area, are unique places to enjoy nature, as those of Bordeira, Amado, Sagres and Vila do Bispo.
Ria Formosa is a natural park which extends itself about 60 km, from Faro Island to near Monte Gordo, is a priviledge place to slow boat trips through a tangle of canals, islands and marshes. But Algarve is also made of mountains, as is the case of Monchique mountain rising up to 900 m, rich in wide landscapes, crossed by chestnut trees and oak trees, and having thermals baths in an idyllic scenery.
Guadiana River is another destination – its mouth meets the marsh of Castro Martim Reserve - offering a series of paths, with cultural, historical and landscape interests.
