The Vicentina coast

The Vicentina coast

Southwest Algarve offers unique sites where the simplicity and conservation status of natural resources are the hallmark of the region.

The Vicentina coast makes part of  a natural park (PNSACV) and you can explore and experience with us the pleasant natural sensations of this protected area. In between the village of Aljezur and Algarve's southwestern cape, Cabo de São Vicente we can show you some of the park's most exclusive beaches. You will have the chance to observe tidal pools with gobies, mussels, limpets and barnacles, starfish and sea anemones. 

More back ground information about the traditional economic activities of the region and its people is to be obtained from a visit to the Museum of Sea and Earth in the seaside village of Carrapateira. An optional lunch is served at a local beach restaurant and gives the opportunity to taste the freshest gastronomical specialties.

On the tour are Bushnell binoculars and telescope available as well as identification guides for fauna and flora. You will be transported in a comfortable minivan equiped with dvd player and several documentories and you will be guided by a certified nature guide for the Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Institute (ICNB).
