Every day of the week there is a market somewhere in the Algarve. Our markets range from traditional veg and fish markets to conventional flea markets where you can find on sale just anything under the sun. The offerings are varied and prices are fair, although at times you should bargain it down.

Situated next to the fishing village of Monte Clerico, in the Aljezur municipality, this calm crystal blue sea and shredded coast beach is inserted in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park. A natural reserve area.
Praia do Vale dos Homens is situated close to Rogil, the borough capital. A true pearl of natural beauty and complete calm. Limited by tall cliffs of schist, it is a wide beach and an excellent option for those who prefer quiet and isolation, ideal for nature lovers.

The Eastern Algarve is still relatively under-developed and its small resorts have kept much of their original character.
The heart of the Algarve, the Central Algarve is a perfect holiday destination and a Mecca for those seeking sun, sand and sea.
