Beaches to suit all tastes

Beaches to suit all tastes

With almost 200km of coastline, the Algarve has landscapes that are so different that it is easy to find beaches with distinct characteristics which will satisfy individual interests.

Visitors with a passion for nature will find the Vicentine Coast a true sanctuary.  Formed for the most part by grand escarpments, you can find well-preserved wildlife along this strip of coastline, where eagles and falcons are the main attraction.

The Barlavento region or Western Algarve is characterized by golden cliffs in extraordinary shapes which frame dream beaches.  Amidst these beaches, there is a honeycomb network of caves and sharp rocks carved by the sea.

The Sotavento region or Eastern Algarve, on the other hand, is made up of expanses of sandy beach, interrupted only by the Formosa Estuary.  Here, there are wide islands and sand spits which make for peaceful and delightful beaches.

A lot to choose from… and all with guaranteed quality, even by the most rigorous of standards.
