“Sagres has not only surf breaks for all levels but also a variety of amazing restaurants, bars, cool nightlife, a laid-back vibe, friendly atmosphere and unbelievable sightseen. Overlooking some of the Algarve’s most dramatic scenery, the small, elongated village of Sagres has an end-of-the-world feel with its sea-carved cliffs and empty, wind-whipped fortress Cabo de São Vicente high above the ocean. One kilometre east of the square, past holiday villas and restaurants, is the port, still a centre for boatbuilding and lobster fishing, and the marina. Sagres, is a place privileged by mother-nature, with coastlines facing both South and West. That is the reason why the area is known for having the highest swell consistency in all Continental Europe. Sagres has milder temperatures than other parts of the Algarve, with Atlantic winds keeping the summers cool.”

“Another fortress from the discovery time! Unfortunately it's closed due erosion on the cliff's affecting the chapel, but it's a place you need to go, check the views to Sagres. A most do, it's the path sculpted on the cliff on the way to the water. Yes here you can do down the 35m high of the cliffs in SAFE!”
