We give you 4 suggestions of the many we have to explore the Natural Algarve:

Enjoy the nature of Rocha da Pena

1.

Rocha da Pena

Hidden paradise in the rich Barrocal countryside

Rocha da Pena is a protected nature conservation area which support ecosystems of great ecological interest.

Between Benafim and Salir, with an area of more than 600 hectares and rising to a height of 479 metres, the craggy terrain of the Rocha da Pena site invites tourists to go for walks and is great for rock climbing.

Alvor Beach

2.

Alvor Estuary

Sites of Ecological Interest

Remarkable Observatories

Places where you can see different bird species nesting include the Alvor Estuary, Paul de Budens and Leixão da Gaivota. These are places where you can follow the incredible beauty of birds in flight.

The Alvor Estuary, nestled between Portimão and Lagos, is the most important wetland area in Western Algarve.  A lagoon complex, it covers 1400 hectares of marsh and dunes, which makes the area an excellent place for bird watching.

Monchique Mountains

3.

Serras de Monchique Espinhaço de Cão and Caldeirão

Variations in landscape in a diversely charming Algarve

Acting as a gigantic amphitheatre, the Monchique, Espinhaço de Cão and Caldeirão hills form a protective barrier for the lowlands of the coastal region, providing shelter from the cold northern winds.  The breeze from the Atlantic also contributes to the unique vegetation of the area.

Monchique is like a garden with breathtaking scenery and unique plant life within the Algarvian landscape.  This north-western part of the region emerges with streams flowing down from escarpments, hills where the arbutus berry tree grows, and where oaks, pines and chestnut trees are to be found.

Ria Formosa Nature Park

4.

Ria Formosa

Natural paradise between land and sea

The Ria Formosa Nature Park is a unique lagoon system that is continually changing because of the movements of winds, currents, and tides.

A gift of nature, of approximately 18,000 hectares, it is an area of transition between land and sea skirting 60 km of the Eastern Algarve coastline, between the Ancão peninsula and the Manta Rota beach in the East.

As you can see, our idea is to invite you to appreciate the best of life, get yourself into a good mood and make sure that you go home completely rested and full of energy! We urge you to accept our invitation and let yourself be seduced by the Spring in Portugal.
