You'll experience a memorable montage on this coastal bike tour of Portugal, from magnificent seascapes, pastoral farmlands, working windmills, and historical monuments such as Henry the Navigator's Navigational School perched on a wild headland at Sagres, over the blue waters of the Algarve.
Cycle the this route from the end of March to May and the fields are alight with wild flowers and the headlands dotted with bright pink iceplants.
The many beaches along the Alentejo and Algarve coast are wonderful for mid ride swims to cool off and lazy lunches of the freshest fish. grilled to perfection and served with a glass of vinho verde.
