Location

The Southwest Alentejo and Vicentina Coast is wide, wild and worth to explore. It's one of the most preserved coast lines in Europe, home to migration birds, unique plants and a beautiful biodiversity.

This region is quite remote and its heritage is not cultural nor historical, it’s the nature and the possibility of true rest that are the biggest assets of the southwest coast of Portugal, as well as its authentic and peaceful feel. It is a very simple, authentic rural area, with a slow way of living, perfect for a relaxing getaway or an active nature holiday.

From your accommodation you can explore this beautiful and special region or do one of the best things you can do: slow down your pace, empty your mind and pamper your scents.

The Alentejo region is a year round destination. Autumn to Spring is the most consistent and summer is great for learning and progressing. It offers endless possibilities for all standards, some hard to get to secrets, others beautiful open beaches! There are some many waves along this 130 km coastline that it is impossible to describe, below are just a few to note and look out for...

The north part of the region starts with Comporta and the beautiful Carvalhal beach. A great beginners beach, which picks up nice swell for the more advanced in the autumn.

Further South past Sines is Sao Torpes, a long white sandy beach with a jetty at the north side which provides nice sheltered waves when the swell gets big. Further south is L-Point , one of the best waves in the region. Porto Covo is a lovely old town with Praia Grande and a few peaks that can provide a mix of beginners waves and awesome left- hand barrels.

The town of Vila Nova de Milfontes has plenty of waves to go around, including the long beach break Malhao, perfect for all levels. Congumelo is the most famous advanced wave in the town and can produce and excellent left hander.

Keep going south and you reach Zuambujeira do Mar, a beautiful sun drenched town and home to Portugal's biggest music festival in the summer, it has a couple of hidden gems as well as a beginner/intermediate beach. Next stop is the hippy town of Odeceixe, and its surrounding empty beaches that include Carriagem, Amoreira and Monte Clerigo. Make sure to give the car a good wash after as you will be going through some good old dusty roads!
