The Algarve is Portugal’s sunshine coast, boasting endless sand beaches, clear waters and imposing coastal cliffs of sandstone, in colours ranging from yellow to red. These are the ingredients for a relaxing beach holiday! But the southwesternmost corner of the European continent offers even more: a hilly and flower-festooned hinterland, an incomparably impressive rocky coastline and contemplative river landscapes are an enticement to long walks. The Rother Walking Guide »Algarve« presents 53 of the most beautiful coastal and mountain walks that will turn your holiday into an unforgettable experience.
The Algarve’s entire southern coast opens up many enchanting coastal walks: from the southwesternmost tip of Europe through the spectacular coastal cliffs of the Barlavento to the broad sand beaches in the Sotavento, this guide presents many opportunities for short or longer walks - of course, many beautiful spots for swimming breaks are included. Other routes uncover the beauty to be found in the pristine and secluded hinterland of the Algarve: the Monchique mountains soar, the Rio Guadiana river loops in impressive bends and the walking paths through almond orchards and flowery meadows are simply marvellous.
Clear, concise information, reliable route descriptions, informative height profiles and maps with the routes marked in, as well as waypoints, facilitate your choices and provide orientation in situ. GPS data for all of the walks is available for download from the website of Bergverlag Rother. The Rother Walking Guide »Algarve« has been completely revised in this current 2nd edition and has been supplemented with many additional and completely new walks.
