At one with nature
This is an area for outdoorsy types. Gaze for miles from Picota Point, keep your eyes peeled for different bird species at Mina Park, or hike eight miles to the top of mighty Mount Fóia. Life’s a beach – pick yourself a coastal patch! You’ll find plenty of sand just a short drive away.
The bigger picture
Get a taste for resort life. If we’re talking in a literal sense, you can go honey tasting, or even sample the local liqueur, medronho, made from the strawberry plant. Or, you could simply pack a picnic for the woodlands. Hoping for more adventure? Monchique is great for walking, cycling and canoeing!
