8 Things To Do In The Algarve This Winter

Things to do in Algarve

Algarve is a great winter getaway. We suggest a few things to do:

 

1-Ride in the Ria Formosa

The Ria Formosa is one of the most fascinating places in the Algarve. Covering the municipalities of Vila Real de Santo António, Faro, Olhão and Tavira, the Natural Park stretches over 60 km, offering unique landscapes.

 Come to discover this place going through the channels and take time to observe the various species of birds that pass through in the colder months of the year.

2- Walking on the beach or in the countryside

Algarve beaches are known internationally and in summer it is almost impossible to visit them without tripping over a towel or go against a sun umbrella. Now, imagine having the Tavira Island with few people on the beach, just strolling and enjoying the winter sun?

If you are not a big fan of the beach, regardless of the time of year, you always have the mountains as an option. Nothing like a trip to Monchique, Caldeirão, Cachopo to get a different view on the Algarve landscape.
