The programmed walks are designed to offer a good mix of coastal and inland scenery, so that you too can discover the huge welcoming heart of the Algarve. This tour is based in Portimão known for its old quarter, busy marina and proximity to many beautiful beaches and is also a favourite spot for sailing. Portimão on the banks of the river Arade was traditionally a centre for sardine fishing and processing. Today the city’s old and once bustling fishing docks have been remarkably transformed into a scenic promenade, leading to the quaint and tree-lined plazas of the old town. Portimão has a low-key and relaxed ambience with a wonderful working atmosphere. Portimão itself is not a seaside town, however the adjoining Praia da Rocha, Portimão’s resort area is one of the most scenic and famous in the Algarve. Portimão and Praia da Rocha are ideally placed to enable us to explore this fascinating part of the Algarve.
