The place where we’ve spent most of our beach days in Algarve, a paradise for surfers, where the mountains meet the ocean waves: discover Praia da Cordoama. We’ll take you on a quick tour of the most beautiful beach in Portugal! That is, of course, our opinion. But why not see for yourself?
How to get there
Praia da Cordoama is located in western Algarve, on the west coast, and within easy reach from Vila do Bispo. The easiest way to get there is by car. The views and scenery are quite spectacular on the way to the beach, and so is the beach itself. There is a parking lot right next to the beach, where campers and vans often make their way during the day.
One of the most beautiful places in Algarve, Ponta da Piedade is a top tourist attraction. Though there is a general opinion that these gorgeous rock formations are only reachable by boat, Ponta da Piedade can be reached from the shore as well, and it’s equally as spectacular! Here are a few tips for a budget day trip from Lagos to one of Algarve’s gems!
How to get there cheaper!
You may believe the cliffs at Ponta da Piedade can only be reached by boat, but that’s not the case.

Algarve is the beautiful region in the South of Portugal, well-known for its stunning beaches, warm temperatures all year round, as well as its picturesque cities, surfing and camping opportunities, and local cuisine. The Atlantic Ocean borders the Algarve region in the west and south, and due to its pleasant climate, this place attracts a lot of tourists, many of whom choose to buy vacation homes and spend their summers here.
After traveling around Portugal for over two months, we can decidedly say that the best sunset we’ve watched over the Atlantic was at Cabo de Sao Vicente. Incredible rock formations, an iconic red lighthouse, and clouds of mist passing by with amazing speed: the best sunset in Portugal.
We’ve assembled a gallery with our best shots from Cabo de Sao Vicente, and some information on how to get there, and tips on how to make your sunset trip the best experience.
