Where Do our Walking Holidays in Portugal Take Place?

Costa Vicentina

The coastal strip between Odeceixe and Burgau, known as the Vincentina Coast, where the preserved nature has a strong, wild character, creating landscapes of breathtaking majesty. This area is part of the biggest coastal natural park in Europe that starts further north in the Southwest Alentejo and is the longest stretch of protected Portuguese coast. The beaches follow one another, some of them long swathes of sand stretching into the distance, others smaller, framed by magnificent schist and limestone cliffs. The choppy sea produces a natural symphony that serves as the soundtrack to this walking by the sea. The area is home to the famous Rota Vicentina long distance trail, along which we have developed our self guided walking itineraries.
