🇬🇧 August in Rota Vicentina

3 reading time

August is not the best month for walking or cycling in Rota Vicentina, which has always focused on the low seasons on this blessed and wild coast! But we have to agree that August is a “must-have” for many Portuguese people and this editorial is dedicated to them. After all, how can we enjoy Rota Vicentina in the summer season?

The trails are open and available, but the choice must be careful, between fresher days and hours, shorter trails or the Circular Routes and, even so, for those with a great physical condition. Carrying 2 litres of water per person, in addition to the normal sun precautions, hat, sunscreen, etc, are mandatory precautions.

At this time of year, we highly recommend the guided activities for a break from the “beach-eat-sleep routine”. Watching dolphins in Sagres, Interpretative walks in S. Luís,creative tourism in the Algarve, horseback riding in Porto Covo,paddle or kayaks tours in Odemira, Milfontes and Lagos, wine tasting in Santiago do Cacém, traditional arts workshops in Odemira, surf in Milfontes, e-bike tours in Aljezur and much more…

In this link we present our local partners who offer all these activities and in this other link, about 40 programme proposals, of a few hours or several days, for all, but really all tastes!

The landscape reaches the plate and the restaurants reinvent themselves every year, and the names we have listed herenever let you down! So nice to be able to taste, to know, to trust! With this group of entrepreneurs we have a programme to value local products and we recommend that you look to know more about the origin and history of what they eat here. We assure you that everything will taste much better! We look forward to receiving your reviews, suggestions and questions through this simple form or by message on the social media, Instagram or Facebook!

The Rota Vicentina’s Agenda have 2 years old and is another way of getting to know the region! In Rota Vicentina’s Agenda we select street shows, local markets, festivals, everything that best represents the identity of the Southwest! In August, our Agenda is particularly full of good stuff, with guided tours, traditional festivals, cycling programmes and much more!

August has always been the month for beach holidays, but only for those who didn’t realise that our Southwest has much more to offer, by the hands and hearts of those who live here all year round!

See you soon?
