Discover the breathtaking beauty of the western Algarve: admire natural rock formations at Lagos, visit the southwesternmost point of Europe at Cape St Vincent and marvel at paradise beaches in Sagres on this day trip from Albufeira.
Algarve Day Trip: Sagres, Lagos & Cape St Vincent
On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Albufeira, ready to set off on your journey into the western Algarve. The first stop on your tour will be Cape St Vincent, which is the southwesternmost point of mainland Europe. You'll visit the famous Lighthouse, from which you'll have spectacular views over the dramatic rocky cliffs towering above the Atlantic Ocean.
Leaving the cape behind, you'll head back on your comfortable minibus for the short drive to Sagres, a small historic town known for its incredible virgin landscapes and one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. Enjoy a peaceful stroll through the area and explore its historic fort, before being taken to the next stop on your tour: Baleeria.
Your guide will reveal the fascinating history of Baleeira: did you know that the town has one of the best preserved fortresses in all of Portugal?
Get your cameras ready: the next stop on your day trip is one you'll want to remember forever! The Ponta de Piedades is an area of the Portuguese coastline with natural rock formations that will leave you speechless. Golden stone caves, grottos and arches formed from the cliffs over the centuries make this one of the most magical places in the Algarve.
Immerse yourself in the area's legendary history next, visiting Lagos, where you'll feel as though you've travelled back in time as you stroll down Medieval streets lined with picturesque houses and any number of delicious local restaurants to tempt you. What's more, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a boat trip of Lagos to see the sights from a different point of view (not included).
At the end of an unforgettable day trip, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Albufeira.
