Swimming at sunset

After arrival, we will swim at sunset on one of the largest beaches in the region.

At the end of the day, we will have dinner in a typical Portuguese restaurant.

The Hidden Paradise

During the morning we will swim along the coast from Alvor to Portimão, exploring this hidden gem of the Algarve coast.

Then we will take a walk along the Estuary in Alvor, the most important wetland system in the Algarve, an essential staging area for many wintering and migrant waterbirds.

Discovering lost treasures

The penultimate day of the trip is spent in Ilha do Farol.

In the water we will embrace an island that can be seen from a mile away.

After a lunch in the island, we will visit an abandoned site with the best sea view of the region.

Steve Cordwell, English - 2020


My husband Steve, spent a long weekend with Andre and Pedro, he was so excited. Over this weekend, he got to swim at 3 places he's never visited before, he loved it. Exploring caves, pillars and bays in 16-17° water supported by Swim Together, what more would an open water swimmer want? It's given him so much motivation to find new places to swim in the magical Algarve.
