  Coastline near Olhos d'Aqua
by Gerrem

The Algarvian coast spreads over more than 200 km from the Spanish border in the east to the Costa Vicentina in the west. More than 70% of the coast are natural reserves, some of them hosting millions of migrating birds in spring and fall.

The pattern of the coast differs significantly. In the Eastern Algarve dunes and lagunes dominate the picture. The beaches of the Central Algarve are well protected by pittoresque cliffs, and the Western Algarve offers dramatic rocks, hidden creeks and caves washed by the Atlantic Ocean

Directions: You can watch the coast line by boat or discover part to part by car.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
