The Sagres Region is marked by its mystical atmosphere and its unspoilt, dramatic landscape, where the sea and the hills come together creating a unique heritage.
The natural beauty of its beaches, many of which are practically empty, the soaring cliffs in direct contact with the sea, and the wealth of local historical heritage are the main hallmarks of this region. The local population still dedicates itself to traditional activities such as fishing and farming, guaranteeing a rich local cuisine.
A whole range of sports and leisure activities can be pursued, such as fishing, surfing, diving, walking, etc.
It is one of the few places in the Algarve where untouched nature and a rich historical and cultural heritage remain intact.
This coastal region should only be visited by those who enjoy discovering the best path to follow for themselves, who don’t mind having to turn back halfway along a dusty trail and relish the challenge of finding a pathway through the cliffs to reach an alluring and sandy beach.
