Sunrise on Praia do Martinhal
Although you can watch the sun set over the sea the whole length of the country, the beach at Praia do Martinhal is one of the few places where we can watch the sun rising out of the sea. This is due to its geographic location. Wake up early one morning and try it. You won’t regret this magical experience.
Sunset at Cape Saint Vincent
This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful sunsets to be seen in the country. The sun reflected on the sea, bathes the cliffs in unforgettable golden light.
The Magical Islands of Martinhal
As we approach what seems to be one island, we discover that they are in fact four separate islands, which appear to form only one island because of their alignment. When there is a full moon, this ‘island’ seems to emanate a fluorescent light, producing a magical aura around it.
The Playful Dolphins
Just a few miles from the coast by boat, the playful dolphins of Sagres will most certainly appear. Enjoy the playful communication and curiosity of these friendly mammals.
The Secret Passages of Sir Francis Drake
In the service of Queen Elizabeth I, the pirate Sir Francis Drake (better known as “El Draque” - “The Dragon” – by the Spanish), operated in this region for many years. There are still remnants of the secret passages which he used to escape through with the treasures ransacked from the many ships that anchored in this area.
