Follow the Ecovia do Litoral cycle route from the Algarve’s Spanish border to the rocky headland of Cape St Vincent, Portugal’s most southerly point. Discover authentic towns and villages, free from the trappings of tourism – visit the beautiful Roman town of Tavira, where churches outnumber hotels, and the charming fishing port of Olhao, where the laidback lifestyle sets the pace for the rest of the trip.

Cycle along stunning coastal stretches and traffic-free routes, riding past nature reserves and stopping off for ice-creams. Get a taste of typical Algarve holidays when you ride into popular beach resorts, visit a luxury marina and skirt past green golf courses. Sculpted cliffs and fine beaches make laidback Sagres an appealing place to finish – don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to stay longer.
