Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park
After visiting Sagres, we decided to drive north for awhile. The area we toured was the Vicentine Coast National Park. This park covers a lot of area and has beautiful beaches. Most of the drive doesn’t include views of the water but through very dry looking land. Occasionally you will see some cork trees or wind farms but generally there isn’t a lot to look at. You do go through some very small towns on the way. The beaches are also not usually close to the highway or to the parking lots. Most of the beaches require you to climb down steep hills to get there. So I actually didn’t go down to many of the beaches but took in the nice views from up high.
