***WALKING IN THE ALGARVE Discover Algarve's secret corners***
In the Algarve there is a large protected coastline which stretches all the way from Sines to Sagres and then eastwards to Burgau. - it is the Cape St Vincent Natural Park. It became a protected area in order to preserve its unique natural beauty and fabulous flora and fauna. This coastline offers a unique walking opportunity, with a varying geology giving different coastal scenery, seascapes and wild life. This is the Algarve as it used to be before any commercial development.
The well used coastal paths can be accessed directly from the apartment, with good routes both ways from Burgau. Going to the left you can get to Luz, then Porto de Mos, Ponta da Piede (lighthouse) and finally to Lagos.
To the right, you join the footpath to Salema. You are now entering the national park and the route offers stunning views and is a wonderful walk. This is totally unspoilt coastline and the walk is wonderful any time of the year, but especially so in spring when it is awash with wild flowers. You will discover hidden beaches and have time to take a swim.
Mild, sunny winters make walking ideal late September to early June. July and August are generally too hot.
Experience spring time in the land of orange trees, almond blossom & orchids. Bathed in southern sunshine-away from the crowds in this beautiful unspoilt corner of the Algarve. Superb for coastal & mountain walking.
