Costa Vicentina

Maybe the most adventurous sunny coast in Western Europe

The coast between Lisbon and the Algarve is a perfect touring destination all year long.

Magnificant beaches, virgin cliffs, empty trails and side roads and the calm life and tasty food of Alentejo provide perfect conditions for best bike holidays no matter if you are looking for action and adventure or smoove rides and a good time!

The first question is already how to leave Lisbons busy city trafic on both sides or Rio Tejo.

Here you have 3 interesting options: THe ferry boat from Belem to Trafaria, which comes with day trip via Sessimbra to Setubal. The second option is the ferry boat from Terreiro do Paco to Barreiro, followed by the train to Setubal. The third option is specially for everyone who is a bit in a rush: Catching the train from Lisbon to Faro until the station of Grandola. That way you start right out at the countryside.
