Portugal’s Atlantic Coast is blessed with golden sandy beaches and clear waters, although tides are stronger and the water temperature colder than on the Mediterranean. The Alentejo beaches are well known to surfers and body boarders and most offer beach bars and restaurants where you can enjoy some fresh seafood and a glass of local wine, while watching the most extraordinary sunsets!

Alcacer do Sal (Arabian for salt castle) is well worth a visit - the town’s name comes from the Moorish “al qasr” meaning the castle and “sal” refers to the age-old production of salt in this area. This dramatic medieval hilltop town looks down onto the Sado river, which becomes a nature reserve where the river meets the ocean. The reserve is not only vital for the people who live from its bounty, but also for the flora and fauna it sustains including storks, pink flamingos and bottlenose dolphins.
