Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Algarve
Arrive in the Algarve today, one of Portugal’s most famous regions because it is a place that really has something for everyone. You’ll quickly drive away from the busier tourist areas and head to your quiet residence in a more secluded location. Small sandy beaches are only about ten minutes away by car, so take a dip before trying the delicious “cataplana”, a local fish stew, with a glass of Vida Nova wine at the Portuguese tavern nearby.
Beach lazing and Cabo São Vincente
You now have a few days to do as you please. It may be to go no further than the hotel grounds, swapping between laying on your sunbed and floating in the pool. If you prefer to explore the local area, there is a fantastic local market a few minutes’ drive away full of vegetable, bread, olives, fish and fruit. Once you’re stocked up, cycle along the cliffs or drive the coastal route to Cabo São Vincente, also known as the end of the world. The view over the Atlantic with the lighthouse and the fortress in the foreground make it well worth the drive.
Departure from Lagos, west Algarve
Now it is time for your time in the Algarve to come to an end you will either head to Faro airport, or this will mark the beginning of your Portuguese adventure as you head north on your road trip.
Algarve – SUP tour
Today you’ll get a really close look at the Portuguese cliff coasts on your SUP tour. In the early morning, after a wholesome breakfast and good instruction on the beach, you’ll step onto your Stand Up Paddle board. At this time it is still quiet in the caves and on the beaches, which makes for the most beautiful pictures and a relaxed start to the day with a little effort. After a couple of hours paddling, you’ll float back to the beach feeling invigorated.
