Algarve Beach Walk
Also for winter guests in the Algarve, the ebb and flow of the Ocean play an important part in determining what you want to do, which activities you would like to undertake. On the site https://wisuki.com/tide/2501/praia-da-rocha, you will find important information about the tides and water levels. This knowledge is important because if you would like to make a lovely walk along the beach from Praia da Rocha to the lovely fishing village of Alvor, it is essential that you know at what time you need to be at a path or passageway in the rocky coast so that you can leave the beach in time before you are surprised by rising water and perhaps have to wade through the seawater with your bag over your head to keep it dry.
The tide is less of a factor if you are walking from Armacao de Pera. Here you will find miles of flat, sandy beaches without the rocky outcrops and will pass through some of the most beautiful dunes and nature reserves such as Lagoa dos Salgados. There are no ochre-coloured rocks along these beaches, but a beautiful unspoilt dune landscape. To admire the beautiful nature and wildlife in Lagoa dos Saldos, you can even book a birdwatching tour with an expert guide.
