Stray from the beaten path and visit parts of southern Portugal that many first-time visitors miss on a tour of the eastern Algarve. Rather than focusing on the crowded beaches and caves of Albufeira, this tour takes you to coastal towns that time forgot and reveals lesser-known historical landmarks that date as far back at the 18th century. Plus, you’ll receive personalized attention in a small group limited to seven.

Highlights

  • See a different side of the Algarve during an alternative tour
  • Escape the crowds of the southern beaches
  • Discover landscapes and landmarks that take you off the beaten path
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off are included

Enjoy the serenity of exploring places where time passes slowly and traditional customs survive

Cacela Velha is a very old village built on top of a cliff bordering the Ria Formosa. This is where the Natural Park begins which stretches as far as the Ancão peninsula to the west of Faro. With islands, salt-marshes and beaches, the Ria is a true paradise. We'll visit this tiny village perched on a cliff top looking out over the sea, surrounded by wonderful scenery, a jewel that has remained untouched over centuries. In the main square there is a cistern of mediaeval origin, which is the heart of the village. The fortress was built in 1794 and the Main Church has a Renaissance doorway and a fine collection of religious art. This is the place to see the best sunsets in the Algarve.

And then we get to Castro Marim, one of the oldest towns in the Algarve. The Fort of São Sebastião and the Castle of Castro Marim, each on its own hill, were defended by a system of walls. From their walls can be seen “lands of Spain and sands of Portugal” just like the cry of the look-out on board the caravels which is celebrated in a popular song. 

But it forgot to mention the beauty of the marsh and the salt-pans, with the whiteness of Vila Real de Santo António and Ayamonte shining in the distance, between the waters of the Guadiana and the Atlantic.
