One of the finest stretches of protected coast in Europe. Over 100 km of natural habitat from Porto Covo in the Alentejo, to Burgau in the Algarve

The Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park is a huge swathe of the coast of Southern Portugal taking in much of the Atlantic coasts of the Algarve and Alentejo. It stretches nearly 200km (150 miles) from Porto Covo in the Alentejo around Cabo de Sao Vicente to Burgau in the Algarve.
The park includes a range of natural habitats but also protects the cultural heritage of this historic coastline.
