Around Martinhal

Visit Sagres

Dramatic scenery, towering cliffs and golden beaches just waiting to be discovered on your family holiday.

Martinhal Sagres is surrounded by one of the most picturesque natural parks in Portugal – Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina. It is the finest preserved stretch of European coastline, covering over 100 km, from Porto Covo in the Alentejo, to Burgau in the Algarve. The Park includes various unique species of animal and plant life, and is visited by many zoologists and botanists.

PRAIA DA CORDOAMA This is a very sandy beach, disappearing from sight both to the north and south. The highly shaped and progressively more hazy-looking cliffs provide a breathtaking view.

PRAIA DA INGRINA This is a lovely beach – it’s not very big but is a sheltered, sandy bay with rocks at either side and has a popular cafe – restaurant at one side looking right over the beach. It really is an idyllic spot and well worth visiting.

PRAIA DO BELICHE This beach is sheltered from the northerly and westerly winds, nestling in the wide cove formed by the headlands of Ponta de Sagres and Cabo São Vicente.

PRAIA DO ZAVIAL Praia do Zavial is the next bay along from Praia da Ingrina – just follow the road past Ingrina. It is another sheltered, sandy cove in between the cliffs and is very popular with surfers

 

LAGOS Lagos is a municipality at the mouth of Bensafrim River and surround by a beautiful coastline. Melding a lively character with a cherished seafaring tradition, Lagos basks in its reputation as one of southern Portugal’s favorite holiday destinations.
