About the Event
YOU CAN PAY FOR THIS TRIP IN EASY INTEREST-FREE INSTALMENTS! Simply select the option at checkout.
This trip is for a max of 8 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 superb apartment in a resort a short walk from Meia Praia sandy beach. The resort has a swimming pool with a bar and is located in the idyllic town of Lagos with beautiful beaches and, more importantly, some beautiful hiking trails for hikers.
We will be doing a long cliff hike along the coast with incredible views that shadows our Jurassic Coast. Halfway through the hike, we stop at a seaside restaurant for some cheap wine and lovely Portuguese food.
At the end of the hike, we go back to our place where you can finally enjoy the beach.
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!
We will join a local guide for a kayak tour of some secret beaches including the one shown in the picture. This is not included in the fee and will be agreed upon with you separately as not everyone is keen in kayaking.
