Imagine yourself walking on the most beautiful and well-preserved coast of Europe. Now add the feeling of adventure when discovering virgin beaches, rich culture, and cuisine that serves the best the sea has.

Vicentine coast wraps around the Algarve’s cliffy coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and into the Alentejo, covering a stretch of over 120km of lush greenery, steep cliffs, forgotten white sand beaches, and coastal landscapes. The coast, characterized by rugged rocks, sea stacks, sand stratified cliff faces caused by centuries of erosion, is perfect for long walks.
A2Z welcomes you to The Fishermen’s Trail in the Vicentine Route, a network of walking trails in Sw Portugal, totaling 400 km to walk, along the most beautiful and best-preserved coastline of Southern
Europe. Take a journey into the protected zone of Alentejo Southwest and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, discover the ancient Roman ports, indulge yourself with a tasty meal of fresh fish caught with artisanal
crafts, and stop. Delight your eyes and soul with a breathtaking, untouched horizon waiting for you.

If you look carefully along this coastal stretch it is easy to see past climate change written in the rocks.
