Get impressed with the diversity of Algarve.

From Vilamoura, you will cycle to Quarteira, once a modest fisherman’s village, located by the sea, that become a popular tourist destination in the 1960’s. Nowadays, this village is well known for its extensive beach, its fresh seafood and its pine tree forests.

Going from Quarteira to Faro, you’ll be able to visit the famous resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago, with their stylish and contemporary architecture as well as the golf courses, blended with the indigenous landscape, its beautiful coastline and the Ria Formosa natural reserve. Ria Formosa, recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, is a salty lagoon protected from the sea by 5 barrier-islands and 2 peninsulas and is a paradise for birdwatchers. It’s actually one of the most important areas for aquatic birds in Portugal, hosting more than 20,000 birds on a regular basis during the winter period.

 DAY 6:


Olhão is the largest fishing port in the Algarve and is full of character with Moorish-style houses, an influence from the commercial links with Africa. If you’re up for a bit of discovery, you can even find the fortresses that used to defend the region from pirates.

Olhão maintains its cultural traditions well and this can be evidenced when you visit the market, where the stalls sell fish which has been freshly caught that morning. You will also see Olhão’s unique skyline, which still has the presence of hundreds of roof terraces – the “açoteias” -, typical of the Algarve.

Cycling till Fuzeta, you might like to make time for a relaxing coffee overlooking the Ria Formosa salty lagoon.

Tavira is a beautiful Portuguese city, crossed by the river Gilão, a fantastic location with beautiful island beaches (Tavira Island and Praia do Barril) , and a multitude of restaurants, cafes and shops to choose from. The city has life about it all year round without being too busy, and its narrow streets present us with remains of ancient bridges, castles, and churches.

On the way to Vila Real we visit the charming Cacela-a-Velha and the views over the lagoon. Rated as one of the best beaches in the world, “Fabrica” beach, just below the village, is well worth your visit!
