It is the finest preserved stretch of European coastline, covering over 100 km, from Porto Covo in the Alentejo, to Burgau in the Algarve . Also, it is the perfect place for long walks on the beach. The captivating landscape and secret hideaways will help you celebrate great moments away from the crowds. Drive over to the extreme South Eastern section of the Park.  Make sure you visit the lighthouse in the Cape of São Vicente after whom this stretch of coastline has been named and the nearby Sagres promontory that housed the famous nautical school founded by the Infante D.

After spending the night of your dreams on the cliff top, wake up to the view over the headland and the sea disappearing into the horizon. Today we suggest a visit to Lagos. At Lagos, the emphasis is definitely on the sea. Just enjoy the scenery all around you, whether you’re sitting on the terrace of the fortress, with its magnificent view of the bay and the marina, or strolling amidst the rock formations of the headland of Ponta da Piedade with its breathtaking views over the sea.
