A real get-away-from-it-all cycling holiday along the lower section of Portugal's gorgeous Atlantic Coast to Sagres in the Algarve. This holiday is all about spectacular coastal vistas, golden sandy beaches and pleasant relaxed cycling with very manageable daily distances.
Continuing down the coast from where our Lisbon Atlantic Coast South Cycling Holiday finishes, this route completes the journey down to Cape Vincent in the Algarve, Europe's most south-westerly point.
The stunning Atlantic Coast
The glorious beaches and epic coastal scenery take centre stage on this cycling holiday but you'll also discover tiny fishing villages, medieval castles and charming villages too.
Highlights have to be the wild, unspoilt beaches at Oceceixe and Bordeira, as well as the jaw dropping natural beauty of this sparsely populated, rugged coastline. You'll also enjoy exploring the, winding cobbled streets of lovely old towns such as Odeceixe and the erstwhile port of Alzejur.
The food in this region also deserves a mention. Simply prepared fish dishes with locally sourced salads and vegetables are divine and seemingly available everywhere
An added attraction of this unique holiday is that you'll be staying in unique and charming guest houses, often in quite remote locations as you make your way down the coast.
The cycling is relatively easy as the daily distances are very manageable but there are some short climbs to contend with every now and then. You'll be cycling on paved roads as well as ravel tracks. E-bikes are a recommended option for anyone concerned about taking on the climbs on a regular bike.
