Portimão: For Nature's Best Friends
It’s in Portimão that the true nature lovers find one of the most important wet lands of the Algarve – the Ria de Alvor, part of the Nature 2000 Circuits. There, in a visit that starts at Quinta da Rocha, they can admire a great diversity of wild life and vegetation, and a unique landscape.
But there’s a lot more options to enjoy. If you love the sea, you can explore the mystery of the dunes bank in Alvor, or admire the spectacular view from the high cliffs shaped by thousands of years. Or you can go inland and discover a rich and varied landscape. Last, but not least, the Arade river opens its arms to you in a jouney through the history of the region and the extreme beauty of its banks.
Whatever the route you choose, the guide 'In touch with nature' will help you see that Portimão is more that just an amazing beach destination.
