Costa Vicentina

Costa Vicentina


The so-called “Costa Vicentina”, the western coast of the Algarve stretches over more than 60 km from Cape St.Vincent, the south-westernmost corner of the European continent, to Odeceixe on the Algarve-Alentejo border.

The rugged rocks of the steep coast are interrupted by small sandy bays. The climate is slightly harsher than other parts of the Algarve but still gorgeous from Spring to Autumn.  The surging swell from the Atlantic is spectacular and lures surfers from far and wide.
