What else to do?

Drive to the top of Foia, the highest point of the Algarve, just above Monchique and enjoy the most gorgeous views of the coast with the river Arade, and Portimao. After that, allow yourself to get lost in the narrow, winding roads on your way back and experience the real Algarve!

Sit with a book and a light picnic under the canopy at Caldas de Monchique and enjoy the tranquillity and the sound of the stream.

Take a boat trip by traditional fishing boat, from Tavira to Santa Luzia or Faro Marina to Isle Deserta.

Visit the most south westerly point of Europe, Cape St. Vincent; it is breathtaking to sit so high above the Atlantic and watch the waves come rolling in.

Take a walk along the coastline from Ferragudo all the way to Praia do Carvalho. It works like a therapy, it will revitalise your soul and you will also feel fitter as a result!
