Spectacular Algarve Coast


Join founder Chris Hague to explore Portugal's spectacular Algarve coastline. Getting off the beaten path, heading westward towards the setting sun, you'll leave the old town of Faro and discover a coastline of majestic cliffs and hidden bays.

The tiny isle of Culatra is a marvelous little sandbar island in the natural park of Ria Formosa, near the old fishing town of Olhao. Be prepared to travel back in time, because here there are no paved roads and no traffic. If you want to see the traditional Portuguese fishermen's lifestyle, this is the place to be.

Let the salty air stimulate your appetite and settle down at one of the tables of the local eateries to try the oh-so-fresh and tasty seafood.

Inland, old Portugal still exists. Moorish Medieval castle towns look down on white-washed villages and the views stretch away to the ever-present sea. As the most south-westerly point in mainland Europe, the rugged and forbidding Cape St Vincenthas long been considered sacred ground. To the Romans this really was the 'Edge of the World', a supernatural vortex where the setting sun was dramatically submerged by the immense, unknown ocean.
