Things to do (optional)

The nature reserve Costa Vicentina covers almost 75,000 hectares of secluded beaches, steep cliffs, sand dunes, fresh lagoons, and green hills spread along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. As building is mostly forbidden, the area has remained untouched by tourism. Just a few picturesque Portuguese fishermen villages and surfers camping in their vans illustrate the astonishing nature along the coast

Hiking along the cliffs

The area offers a lot to discover. Take a pick-nick and go for a wonderful two kilometers hike through the hills and along the coast to spend your afternoon sunbathing on Praia do Cordoama. You can continue for another 12 kilometers along a beautiful coastal path until you reach the end-of-the-world village Sagres. Enjoy a good cappuccino in the harbour's auction café while watching the fishing boats return and bring in their treasures.

Diving in crystal clear water

Here you can also take a boat tour to discover the Algarve's most secret beaches and sea caves, watch dolphins, or join the diving center to explore the area's sparkling under water world.

Fortaleza de Sagres and Cape Saint Vicente

On the other side of the village, you can find the 'Fortaleza de Sagres' and the famous 'Cape Saint Vicente', the most western point of Europe, long believed to be the end of the world.

Surf lessons and world famous surf beaches

On the way, you will find Praia do Mareta, Praia do Tonel and Praia do Beliche, a few of the area's pearls and famous for its world class surf breaks. Get some adrenaline while watching the local, talented boys surfing waves or take the challenge and join a surf lesson yourself. MEKAYOGA is happy to hook you up with certified and experienced local surf teachers.
