The Costa Vicentina Region


Costa Vicentina Tours and Trips

The Vicentine Coast, located in the Southwestern Natural Park, has beaches which are true gems of nature, yet with tourist facilities which make them perfect for family holidays.

This region located in Southwestern Europe, in the coastal Alentejo, has a mild climate and the preserved nature has a strong and wild character, which translates into stunning landscapes. For those who like hiking or cycling, observe the surrounding nature, go on the discovery of the unknown and enjoy the calm atmosphere, this region is undoubtedly one of the places to meet with Portugal Nature Trails and take some memories back home.

The beaches are excellent for nature lovers who value peaceful settings in areas where human lives in harmony with the fauna and flora of Europe’s best-preserved coastline. The most outstanding of these is Odeceixe, at the mouth of the Ribeira de Seixe, which forms the border between the Alentejo and the Algarve. This beach is surrounded by cliffs, a distinctive feature of this coastal landscape. A wide sandy beach with both sea and freshwater forming small lagoons at low tide is just perfect for calm bathing and peaceful walks to neighboring beaches. Find traditional fishing villages, like Porto Covo, a village that combines the fishing tradition with its fantastic beaches of fine sand, bathed by the transparent waters of the Atlantic and framed by stunning cliffs. Also, you cannot miss the delicious cuisine, the barnacles, the grilled fish, and the delicious wine.
