River Beach of Pego Fundo


River Beach of Pego Fundo

A refreshing inland oasis

A visit to the ‘Deep Algarve’ can also mean a refreshing day-out to a beach, because in the north-east interior of the region, Alcoutim has a delightful river beach – Pego Fundo.

In a unique setting on the banks of the Guadiana and with a view of Spain, Alcoutim emerges as one of the most attractive towns in the Algarve. With its ornate lace-like chimneys – a typical feature of Algarvian architecture - Alcoutim could easily be ‘Alentejan’ or Spanish because of its geographical location.

Leaving the town, on the road to Vila Real de Santo António, there is a plaque with directions to the river beach, located in a pleasant area equipped with the best of beach amenities.

A small dam built in a branch of the Cadavais River forms a slow-moving water course with an agreeable temperature, alongside which you can spend a refreshing and relaxing day. 

For this ‘oasis’ to be fully enjoyed by people with physical disabilities, the beach is equipped with ‘tiralots’ (floating beach chairs with wheels), a piece of equipment that allows people with reduced motor skills or mobility to be able to access the beach and enter the water easily.

This beach offers a variety of activities, including a shaded garden, beach volleyball court, gymnastic equipment, parking, a bar and changing rooms with shower cubicles, all of which invite holidaymakers to enjoy a day-out with the family.  Apart from support services for bathing, the beach is patrolled by a lifeguard.
