SagresPortugal

Sagres is the most southwesterly settlement in the Algarve and is home to some of the most impressive landscapes in the region.

Visitors come to Sagres for its stunning beaches, notably the Martinhal Beach with spectacular views. It’s a city for families, surfers, divers, cyclers, fishermen or simply tranquillity seekers.

Cabo São VicenteCape St. Vicent is about 6 km from Sagres, on the Vincentine Coast, right next to Sagres Point. This cape with its vertical cliffs dropping down into the Atlantic and amazing sunset views is a popular landmark. From here, you’ll be able to spot the area’s rich marine life and nesting birds. There’s also a lighthouse that was built in 1846, over the ruins of a 16th Century Franciscan convent, which is now a museum that tells the story of Portugal’s maritime history.

BeachesSituated to the north of the Cape St. Vincent is Tonel Beach. Thanks to its lively waves it’s popular amongst surfers and paragliders. Still, it’s a great place to relax, and is equally attractive to those who are looking for a little rest and relaxation in a quiet spot. Other family favourites include Mareta and Martinhal beaches.

Food and DrinksBeing a coastal town, it no surprise that fresh fish is the main event when it comes to the local cuisine, with speciality dishes like gooseneck barnacles, cuttlefish or fried moray eel. The town square, Praça da Republica, is where you’ll find all the best restaurants. Sagres is also famous for its spirits like Aguardente, a Portuguese brandy, and Medronho, which is made from the strawberry like fruit of the arbutus. Popular desserts include arroz doce (rice pudding) and tarte de amêndoa (almond tart).

ShoppingIn Sagres there are plenty of shops selling artisan plates and locally made pottery. Near the lighthouse you’ll find merchants selling all sorts of items from clothes to fresh food. On Fridays there’s a fleamarket in Vila do Bispo, selling fresh vegetables, fruit, clothing, textiles, shoes and household items.
