Portugal: The Algarve

Short Break in the Algarve's Wild West

  • Walk beside the crashing Atlantic; follow the Rota Vicentina and Fishermen's Trail
  • Relax in an eclectic mix of hotels, from a rustic village conversion to a chic 4 star hotel
  • Delicious, typical Algarvian cuisine
  • Excellent for bird-spotting (over 190 species); carpets of wildflowers
  • Look out from Cabo de Sao Vicente lighthouse, Europe's most southwesterly point
  • Based on our popular 6 night, Walk the Algarve's Wild West

Far beyond the 'developed' Algarve in Portugal's most southerly Atlantic corner, lies the Sagres Peninsula, a startlingly pristine region of golden beaches, imposing cliffs, swaying flower meadows, dramatic coastlines and tree-lined paths. Locals here offer a warm welcome and hold on to the traditions of rural life. The easy-to-follow trails take in rich verdant valleys, pine forests and rugged coastlines, making exploring on foot amazingly rewarding. Birdlife also abounds here with endemic and migratory species passing through from Africa and Northern Europe. With winter very similar to spring in the UK, you can enjoy the warm temperatures of the Algarve from October right through to May.

Your route takes you to the fishermen's village of Carrapateira, along a mix of coastal and inland paths amid bird and orchid-rich forests to remote Pedralva. From this white village you follow the Rota Vicentina, a national trail interlinking with the Fishermen's Trail that starts in the Alentejo. It hugs beaches and cliffs all the way to Cabo de Sao Vicente, the farthest flung corner of Europe.

All your hotels have pools, and range from designer chic above the bay in Sagres, to country village style in Pedralva, where every house in the village has been restored to provide rustic accommodation. In Vila do Bispo you stay in a traditional pensao (coaching inn), now beautifully modernised, that was once a stopping-off point for pilgrims on their way to the Cape. Two dinners are included and the local cuisine is a sumptuous mix of fresh fish, local meats and fresh vegetables, accompanied by tangy cheeses and quality chouricos; all complemented by a superb choice of Portuguese wines.

Day 1: Arrive at Sagres

Arrive in the characterful coastal town of Sagres in time for your dinner.
You stay at the Hotel Memmo Baleeira (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 2: Sagres to Pedralva 15km/9.5mi/4hr or 17km/11mi/5hr

After a 30-minute transfer you'll follow the Fishermen's Trail, passing pines and gorse as you head to the cliff tops and the impressive Amado beach, an internationally renowned surf beach. Make your way down to the village of Carrapateira, with its bars and restaurants offering a great lunch stop. Do take time to visit the interesting Land and Sea Museum for an insight into the history of the village and its fishing economy. You'll then pick up the Rota Vicentina passing one of the Algarve's finest viewpoints, following a lovely trail through the Sinceira Valley and the course of the River Sinceira, as you make your way to charming Aldeia da Pedralva and your own village house.
You stay at the Aldeia da Pedralva (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 3: Pedralva to Vila do Bispo 13km/8mi/3.5hr or 18km/11.5mi/5hr

There are two options for today, both setting off through a forest of pine and eucalyptus as you follow the Rota Vicentina, then a meandering trail through flower meadows leading you along a path and down to the pretty village of Vila do Bispo. The longer trail adds a wonderful horseshoe loop heading into the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, to Praia da Barriga (Barriga beach) with its impressive cliffs and crashing waves - the perfect picnic spot.
You stay at the Hotel Mira Sagres (breakfast included)

Day 4: Vila do Bispo to Cabo de Sao Vicente/Sagres 15km/9.5mi/4.5hr

Surrounded by foaming Atlantic breakers, Cabo de Sao Vicente marks the most south-westerly point of Europe. The walk out to the edge of the continent should prove to be one of the highlights of your week! You are spoilt with amazing coastal scenery on this wild and unpopulated route that follows sandy paths and gorse-strewn meadows to the very edge of the Iberian Peninsula. At the Cape there is a lighthouse, museum and small bar, offering wonderful photo opportunities. It's a short transfer (5 mins) back to Sagres where you can relax with a cold drink on the waterfront, watching fishermen mending their nets.
You stay at the Hotel Memmo Baleeira (breakfast included)

Day 5: Leave Sagres

Aldeia da Pedralva , Pedralva

Swimming Pool IconHair dryer icon

This is a magical place, a real find. In 2006 the village of Pedralva was a ruin with houses just left to rot by owners who no longer wanted to live in the countryside. However, Antonio Ferreira, after initially deciding to buy a couple of houses, eventually renovated 24 which have been beautifully restored to create 24 rooms. The village itself is surrounded by verdant nature parks and offers great walking and cycling possibilities. Food here is rustic Portuguese, simple in terms of ingredients but mouth watering in terms of quality, flavour and freshness.

So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Mr Armitage, 16/03/2020

Excellently

planned trip that took the guesswork out of a self organised trip. All transport arrangements such as pick up, transfers, and luggage drops were spot on. Good contact was maintained at all times, but not over powering. Well organised and use of the GPS for walking was a bonus. Hotels were the right quality, and we got a good break


Mr Lloyd, 08/04/2019

The product did exactly what it said on the tin. All the support was first class (and with a dental emergency - above and beyond). The hotel choices were fine. The walks were not tough in themselves but packed together on a short break made the trip more of an endurance test than a relaxing holiday. Headwater were excellent.


Mr Barron, 30/03/2019

Very efficient in booking holiday and follow up. Tony and Ludmilla were very welcoming and provided excellent support. Explanations of routes and waymarks were fully explained. Hotels were good and helpful in dealing with any queries. A thoroughly enjoyable break though for my age should have chosen a longer period to include "rest" days for shorter walks and exploration.


Mrs White, 21/01/2019

A relaxing break, with all the administrative hassle taken away.


Hickey, 03/11/2018

Short but very enjoyable. Good walking through varied country with some outstanding coastal sections. The instructions were very clear and accurate. And the hotels were fine. A very good short break.


Mrs Holmes, 30/03/2018

A really pleasant short break from winter! The three hotels were so different, yet each one was a pleasure to stay in. The walks were a good length, without being exhausting, and varied from exhilarating cliff top paths to delightful country tracks meandering through flower-filled meadows surrounded by gentle wooded hills - we had great fun taking off our boots and wading across the stream several times! We returned home wonderfully refreshed, only wishing we could have stayed longer.


Goodinson, 23/10/2017

This was an excellent holiday, such a stunning coastline. Really relaxing and enjoyable, good walking with great views. Great hotels and wonderful food, the trip was organised so well. This short break was the perfect combination of exercise and relaxation and I would love to come back to this part of Portugal again.
