The Best Algarve Coastal Walks to Do With the Family

The Algarve is known to be one of the most picturesque places to visit in Europe. If you’re a holiday goer who loves to get up and go, instead of sunbathing on the beach, then taking a coastal walk could be the ideal holiday activity for you and the family. The Algarve is also known and the Golden Triangle, as it’s home to white and golden shores and mile long stretches of coastline to be explored.

Here are some of the best Algarve coastal walks to do with the family:

Exploring the coast of Lagos

If you’re staying in Lagos, then a walk along the rocky coast is a must. The rock formations in Ponta da Piedade and Praia da Marinha are a stunning natural occurrence.

This is said to be a really peaceful experience, so it’s a perfect way to get yourself into holiday mode.

Along the walking track, you will find little beaches that surround the rock formations, as well as a view of the Lagos bay. The Ponte da Piedade is known to be one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the Algarve that many travel to see.

Sagres Area

If you want to experience a culmination of culture and nature in one go, then the walk from Sagres to the cape of St. Vincent offers a unique experience. The typical route begins at the fortress of Sagres and down to the cape of St. Vincent. It’s interesting to note that the cape of St. Vincent is the south-westernmost point of Europe.
