This is a quiet hiking program along the most beautiful golden cliffs in the Algarve coast where you can admire the natural beauty of the limestone cliffs carved by the sea and the wind.

This tour starts in the cosmopolitan city of Lagos which is one of the oldest cities in the Algarve. You can still see evidence of the wall surrounding the town for protection. You follow an amazing coast line to Ponta da Piedade where you will find fantastic sceneries of cliffs, caves and rocks with an amazing mixture of colors! From above the sea you will see the small town of Luz where there is a beautiful beach of fine and golden sand!

On your second day walking you will find some small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses which remind us of the time when this coast was ravaged by pirates! In Salema you can enjoy the beach and the tasty local gastronomy based on fresh fish from the ocean. Here you can rest on the third day or you can opt for a walking tour inland discovering typical small towns and a fantastic stone pine wood.

The fourth day is the most spectacular in natural beauty! Deserted secret beaches with lagoons and a coast line almost untouched by Man, a landscape of rare beauty which is discovered while you walk along trails on the cliffs. Finally you get to beautiful Baleeira Bay, with an amazing beach of fine sand and five small islands which give this place a unique charm! This is where you will stay the last two nights of your program.

On the last walking day you will walk along the high cliffs of Sagres and to Cape S. Vicente - the place where the land ends and the sea begins! Sagres is the south-westernmost point in continental Europe and the place from where our brave forefathers sailed on their caravels seeking new peoples and continents five centuries ago!
