Portugal’s Hideaways: Costa Vicentina

Visit the Costa Vicentina, the coastal strip between Odeceixe and Burgau, where the preserved nature has a strong and wild character, which translates into landscapes of breathtaking grandeur.

This area is part of the Natural Park which starts further north in the southwest of the Alentejo and which constitutes the largest extension of the Portuguese coast subject to protection. The beaches follow one another, sometimes with extensive sands as far as the eye can see, or smaller ones framed by grandiose cliffs of shale and limestone. The rough sea produces a natural symphony, which serves as a soundtrack to this walk by the sea.

We start from Odeceixe, the most northerly point, a beach that develops on both sides of a stream, providing bathing in the sea and river. Here we find little frequented beaches, some almost deserts with little known access such as Praia das Adegas reserved for the practice of naturism. Vale dos Homens, Carriagem, Amoreira and Monte Clérigo are other beaches to discover among cliffs covered with vegetation, which here and there offer fabulous panoramas on this rugged coast.
