We stayed for 3 days at Casas da Lupa, rural turismo in the middle of nowhere...
We spend our days on different beaches in the Natural Parc of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina. The ocean is wild overhere and the coastline is rough.
Wonderful relaxing days before we went on to Lisbon.

Cabo de São Vicente
On our trip from Lagos to the Natural Parc of South West Alentejo, we visited Sagres, the most western beach of the Algarve and of course Cabo de São Vicente.
The Cape of Saint Vincent is Europe’s southwesternmost point.
This wind blasted and storm pounded headland is what you expect, for what was once considered, the end of the world.
The jagged cliffs rise sixty meters from the sea and high above one of Europe’s brightest lighthouses.
It's a spectacular spot! Unfortunately we could not stay for the sunset, because we had to drive to our next destination...

Lagos is one of the Algarve’s most attractive and historic towns.
The centre is enclosed in largely 14th century walls. Within the city walls you can find some beautiful street art.
Lagos has the proximity to some of the region’s best beaches.
To the east is the long sweep of Meia Praia, you only have to take the small boat to cross the water to walk to the dunes.
Further to the west, you’ll find the series of coves, caves and rock stacks and small beaches for which the Algarve is best known.
