ALGARVE CLIFF TRAILS HIKE

DEFAULTQuarto24 05_Portugal_memmo_baleeira

DESCRIPTION

TRIP INFORMATION

Can you imagine walking through a golden treasure? The Algarve Cliff Trails will take you to discover the Algarve coast, a unique painting where you can admire wonderful views of limestone cliffs carved by the sea and wind. Along the way, you will find small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses that remind us of the time of the kings and the time when the pirates ravaged this coast, immersed in the beautiful unspoiled beaches of Algarve!

ARRIVAL 

Welcome at FARO or LISBON airport, our Guide will drive you to Lagos for about 3 hours if you are coming from Lisbon, or simply one hour if your pickup is at Faro.

LAGOS to LUZ BEACH

The old and narrow streets of the city of Lagos will be your starting point. Heading towards the sea, you can still see evidence of the ancient wall surrounding the town. Later you will be delighted when you get to Ponta da Piedade, a group of rock formations, formed by dense eroded cliffs that have carved out rocky pillars, natural tunnels and hidden caves, where you can find one of the most beautiful natural scenery of the Algarve coast. Find some quiet and peace to rest at the small town of Luz, by a wonderful beach of pure golden sand.

LUZ BEACH to SALEMA VILLAGE

Today is reserved to experience some quiet but lovely local villages and their fishing tradition. The beach of Luz is just perfect! You can enjoy the quiet beautiful beach or just explore some of the ruins of Roman baths from 3rd to 5th century just behind the wall that runs along the promenade. What can we say about Salema? It’s a fantastic out-of-the-way and laidback smalltown, an alternative village where you can enjoy the beach and the tasty local gastronomy based on fresh fish from the ocean.

INLAND VILLAGES in SALEMA

SALEMA| ZAVIAL to SAGRES

Today there are two options: start your hike to Sagres in Salema or after a short car transfer from Zavial. This day is the most challenging day on the program, but also the most spectacular one in natural beauty! Wander through unspoiled secret beaches with lagoons and a coastline almost untouched by Man. You will find a landscape of rare beauty right there for you to discover while you walk along trails on the cliffs. At Baleeira Bay, enjoy an amazing beach of fine sand and five small islands that give this place an unique charm.
