A tourist train will take you to the Praia de Santo António beach during the summer months and there is a lovely restaurant and beach club with DJ called Caramelo Beach Club there, open from June to September. Of course, driving to this beach is possible too, however it’s a bit of a dirt track, but by car it’s about 4 minutes. There are concession beach beds available, but it never feels crowded even in the summer months! From this beach you can walk for miles to Praia Verde which takes about an hour along the beach. Praia do Cabeço has a real beach club vibe as well. Monte Gordo is a 30 minute walk along the beach. So much to do and see for adventure seekers and nature lovers.
Other than the beach, you can take a 10 minute drive to the historical village of Castro Marim or take a trip to Ayamonte on the Spanish border just across the Guadiana river for tapas. Its a quick ferry boat trip across which allows you to experience both the Portuguese and Spanish culture, just in one holiday. You can also enjoy world class golfing on Monte Rei golf resort, a 25 minute drive or take advantage of the excellent cycling opportunities in the region, one of the most popular activities in the area.
There is a nature reserve called the Reserva Natural do Sapal de Castro Marim e Vila Real de Santo António. There is a new cycle track beside the nature reserve on the road to Castro Marim and you can often see Storks and Flamingos there. The cycle to Castro Marim is approximately 20 minutes. There are fabulous safari tours through the nature reserve on open top jeeps. There are also natural salt pans in this area and outdoor, mineral-rich water spa where visitors can bathe in salt and clay, excellent for the skin!
This is a whole other Algarve, an unspoilt one far away from the hustle and bustle of tourist centreswhere the only sound you hear is the birds. Plenty of nature, local culture, excellent beaches and good food.
