About the Event
This trip is for a max of 12 people. Don't wait too long to book your place!
Ditch the British cold and dark weather to the sunny 20+ Celsius of the early spring in south Portugal!
On this trip, you will stay at a lovely studio apartment a short walk from Meia Praia's sandy beach. The apartment complex has a swimming pool and is located in the idyllic town of Lagos with beautiful beaches and, more importantly, some beautiful coastal hiking trails.
We will be doing a long cliff hike along the coast with incredible views that shadows our Jurassic Coast, which includes a fun scramble down a "secret" beach with its own cave. Halfway through the hike, we stop at a seaside restaurant for some cheap wine and lovely Portuguese food.
We will also do a local town walk to admire the Portuguese colourful and romantic architecture, stopping at a small back street restaurant used mainly by the locals where they serve fish caught that morning by a small fishing boat. Talk about sustainability!
You will also have free time to enjoy the beach or join a surfing/ kite surfing lesson (ask us in advance o avoid disappointment).
We will join a local guide for a boat tour of some hidden beaches including the one shown in the picture. This is not included in the fee but you can pay for it separately as not everyone is keen on boat rides.
