Algarve Coastal Walk

The coast between Albufeira and Cabo S. Vicente / Sagres, with its fascinating landscape, offers ideal conditions for hiking. The Algarve Coastal Wald follows the cliffs and beaches and has spectacular landscapes, caves, remote beaches and untouched nature. At this walk a Algarve will be discovered that is still original and surprising.



For the Algarve Coastal Walk we book the accomodation for you and organise the luggage transfer.
