Sailing holidays in the Algarve

Thursday August 5, 2010

In the Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, surf's up on many of the beaches, golf greens overlook the sea, the climate is mild and the beaches quiet. That all sounds pretty good in itself, but there's more to it: the dramatic landscapes of Cape of San Vicente, for example, geological vagaries such as the orange rock formations of Lagos, or the nature-rich area of the Ria Formosa lagoon; then there are historic cities such as Faro and the lively nightlife of the small coastal towns.

All of these are great incentives to visit, but in summer there's an even more tempting invitation: sign up for a cruise on one of the ships that ply the waters off the Algarve's spectacular coastline and enjoy exploring sea caves, sunbathe on a lonely beach, sample freshly-caught sardines hot from the grill, to the accompaniment of live music, or swim with the dolphins.
