Alentejo & Algarve self guided cycling holiday, Portugal

This easy to moderate tour starts by heading south along the coast from the whitewashed walls and terracotta tiles of Vila Nova Milfontes.

There is no development just natural rocky coastline all the way to the small village of Zambujeira do Mar, a little fishing village perched on the cliffs above the Atlantic. We stop here for a night where there is a sandy beach and a good selection of restaurants. Venturing further along the coast magnificent beaches stretch out between the cliffs. We arrive in Aljezur, a village where a Moorish castle stands guard high on the hilltop and if you are feeling ... Read more >
