About this book

This book describes 33 walks in the beautiful Algarve in southern Portugal. Boasting good weather, easy access, stunning scenery and some great hiking trails, the region is a perfect destination for a walking holiday. It is best known for its spectacular coastline: the coastal trails presented here afford ample opportunity to admire the plunging sinkholes, striking sea-cliffs and rock-hugged beaches. However, the interior is every bit as beautiful and other walks explore the forested slopes of Monchique and the tranquil countryside between the mountains and coast.

The routes range from 3.5 to 17km and cover the sun-kissed south coast, the rugged Vicentina Coast, the Monchique mountains and traditional villages of the eastern Algarve. Many can be accessed by public transport and details, along with tips on refreshment opportunities on route, are provided in the text. The route description is accompanied by clear mapping and notes on local points of interest.

Showcasing the region's varied landscapes, highlights include Cabo de São Vicente, Europe's most southwesterly point; the Algarve's highest peak, Fóia (902m); historical sites; dramatic cliffs, arches and sea-stacks; and idyllic beaches. With information on the Algarve's history, plants and wildlife and advice on travel and potential bases, Cicerone Guides: Walking in the Algarve is an ideal companion to exploring this captivating region.

Customer Reviews


Nike Werstroh and Jacint Mig met many years ago on a long coach journey as they both travelled into the unknown to build a new life in a different country. She always loved travelling and with Jacint she visited many countries. Her love of outdoors emerged after visiting Madeira in 2008. She was mesmerized by the trails and views and since then wherever she and Jacint go they try to seek out the best trails. Nike really enjoys walking in the mountains and would happily spend every day on the trails. They operate the website
