This island is so beautiful, not even the sun can resist paying us a visit every day. On this tour we will visit the Southwest coastal villages, some of them were only accessible on foot or boat until the 1970s. Precious little gems where most of the tourists never reach.

I always remember the first time I’ve spent a weekend in Jardim to Mar (Sea Garden village if we translate it literally), my favourite South Coast village, I felt overwhelmed by the energy of this place, regardless the time of the year, is always blooming surrounded by immense blue and cliffs that look like a burnt colour palette.

You will walk with me the nostalgic beautiful footpaths, all covered with basalt and limestone patterned pavements where only the sound of running water or the waves can be heard.

Along the coastline, we will stop in every village until the Ponta do Pargo impressive lighthouse located in the Southwestern most tip of Europe. The return will be through the Rabaçal Valley and Paul da Serra Plateau, 1500 meters high.

This tour can be extended 1 or 2 hours without any extra cost.
