Ride the beautiful oceanic roads and discover the Arrábida and the Southwest Alentejo natural park, the finest preserved stretch of European coastline, covering over 100 km. These Parks include various unique species of animal and plant life, and are visited by many zoologists and botanists from all parts of the world.
Experience the tremendous variety of beaches, including long stretches of sand and small beaches nested between the cliffs and rocks. Beaches such as Porto Covo, Malhão, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Almograve, Monte Clérigo, Arrifana and Praia do Amado, many of them preserved in a virtually unspoilt state. Take the ferry to the Tróia peninsula and admire its amazing wildlife, where you might just get to see dolphins.
Ride from Cape Espichel sanctuary, with its trademark cliff and dinosaur tracks, to Cape of São Vicente and the nearby Sagres promontory that housed the famous nautical school founded by the Infante D. Henrique in the 15th century. The car-free roads and trails of the Alentejo provide a great atmosphere for cycling tours and its topography makes it a great region for beginner and intermediate riders.
With its trademark gastronomy and great wines, it’s a great opportunity to taste the amazing fresh fish and seafood that are abundant in this region, as well as the local pastries.
