Aljezur, Algarve, Portugal

Nestling among the rolling hills of north western Algarve represents the untouched Algarve, an area of beautiful natural landscapes where some of the best beaches in Portugal await you.

Situated in the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa vicentina, the large natural park that extends along the western coast of the Algarve, Aljezur is a small agricultural town lying on the fertile plains that border the Aljezur river.

Outside the town, it´s hard to decide what is more appeling; countryside or coastline. Natural treks, mountain biking or horse rides around the hills offer the opportunity to admire wild boar, foxes and badgers in their natural habitat while Aljezur´s 40Km coast is a treasure trove of rich marine life, numerous species of local and migrating birds and beatiful mix of virgin beaches and peaceful river valleys.
