Sightseeing

One of the best hiking trails in Europe. If you love walking in nature, you can't miss. My favorite are the fisherman's trails that go along the coast. One of the trails passes right next door. For more info, visit https://rotavicentina.com/

Beaches

One of my favorite beaches. You need to go with the low tide so you can walk along the coast and discover all the adjacent hidden beaches. It looks like you are inside a dream.

Vicentine coast is a surf paradise and Praia da Arrifana is the best spot if you want to get initiated. This natural bay has steady smaller waves perfect for learning. There are several stores in Aljezur and on your way Arrifana where you can rent suits, surfboards and have surf lessons. Avoid if you are not into surf as this place is usually crowded with surfers : )
