Though the town of Sagres has roots in the Portuguese Age of Discovery, it is better known by visitors as a peaceful, rugged resort spot with great surfing beaches.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Odeceixe Beach and Arrifana Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Praia Da Amoreira and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Change things up with a short trip to Praia do Monte Clérigo in Aljezur (about 48 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Amado Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Parque Zoologico de Lagos, and make a trip to Praia da Cordoama.

To find reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Sagres online trip planner.
