Costa Vicentina Portugal

Post by ErikGustav2 » Thu Oct 08, 2020 8:03 am

This story is from a one day tour in ALgarve Portugal.
From Albufeira to Costa Vicentina and back.

The Costa Vicentina is the Western coast of the Algarve

The area is a national park

This was the plan

I did not go to the the most far corner. Sagres. And Lighthouse of Cabo de São Vicente

That was a separate trip.
(Maybe another post)
Also Silves on the way back is worth a separate visit.

The trip was 300 km.

Bordeira

Post by ErikGustav2 » Thu Oct 08, 2020 8:16 am

The road from Albufeira to Vila do Bispo is not muck to say about.
Mainly boring N125.
From Vila do Bispo,it is close to Sagres and the Lighthouse of Cabo de São Vicente.
But that will be another post.
I turned north on N268 towards Bordeira.
With it's beatiful coast.

To get some nice driving, I continued North on N120 to Odemira.
From there to Monchique are nice and twisty roads.
