Step out of the city life by going to Praia da Cordoama and Arrifana Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia do Monte Clérigo and Praia Da Amoreira. Take a break from Sagres with a short trip to Odeceixe Beach in Aljezur, about 1h 10 min away. Next up on the itinerary: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, kick back and relax at Amado Beach, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and meet the residents at Parque Zoologico de Lagos.
