WELCOME TO COSTA VICENTINA NATIONAL PARK
We invite you for a deep travel through body / soul / and spirit.
After the 15thSeptember, most of the tourists are gone, as well as the big heat of summer.
Temperature is around 20 degrees and it is the perfect time to embrace the pleasure of walking along the coast and wild beaches and see the fields full of almond and orange trees.
You will enjoy wonderful views combined with spectacular beaches for its diversity of scenery; from the system of dunes, towering cliffs, the long sandy, wave energy to the tranquility of the lagoon.
You will depict in all walking tours the constellation that offers you high cliffs, lonely beaches and the pure air of the Atlantic.
Depending on the tides, we will walk along long sand beaches, or following paths along impressive, majestic cliffs formations, or simply cross and climb steams.
The main features of these beaches are the incredible rock formations and small huts, which support the fishermen.
Some of these beaches like ‘vale dos homens’ are especially remarkable for its wild condition.
Nature here plays a major role, and it is possible to observe storks nesting in the beach cliff, which does not happen anywhere else in the world.
Let us take you to visit the white villages full of character with art beautiful tiles displayed at houses, splendid fisheries ,passing old windmills, on white and blue villages, by the houses of the last shepherds of cows and goats.
