What you'll do

Explore the best preserved places in the Algarve, enjoy secluded beaches, immerse yourself in local traditions, and relax in a charming local fishing Village. There's a lot of swimming involved too in an undiscovered region, in the south of Portugal!

This trip is popular for its combination of clifftop walks and coastal swims, giving you a taste of both worlds. Swim into Praia da Marinha and see for yourself why it's constantly voted one of Europe's best beaches. Marvel as we swim past sinkholes, sea stacks, through tunnels, caves and sea arches, and visit unspoiled areas inaccessible by land.

Along with our experienced swimming guides, who know the area like no one else, you'll have all the safety support you need to enjoy this odyssey to the fullest, witnessing this unique part of the Algarve.
