Destinations Southwest Coast

The Wild Southwest Coast

Costa Vicentina stretches from Sagres to Odeceixe, and the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo climbs north to Sines, but the only difference between these parts are the regions where they are set in – the Alentejo and the Algarve.

The Destination

The Portuguese southwest coast is presented among slopes and rocky cliffs, secluded, deserted beaches and a unique spirit of freedom, commented on by many.

The Atlantic Ocean brings cheer to this whole setting and has a lot of influence on this preserved haven. The fauna has a very unique personality and the birds are definitely the strong point of the region, as the park lies on a migratory route for these birds, coming from Africa and Europe, providing an ornithological diversity unmatched in value.

Reasons To Love It
  • The sense of freedom when you see the cliffs and coastal escarpments
  • The wild and deserted beaches of the Alentejo Coast
  • The tranquillity of its genuine, sleepy villages
  • The authenticity of its people

The fishing villages of the Alentejo coast are a delight. Small and painted white, they lead a very calm and quiet day-to-day life, convey authenticity and simplicity. At the table, the fresh fish and seafood, washed down with Alentejo wine are the delight of those who really want to get involved with the destination.
