33 walks in the south of Portugal including Serra de Monchique and Costa Vicentina

Guidebook to 33 day walks in the Algarve, Portugal's southernmost region. The selected routes offer both coastal and inland options, including the Serra de Monchique and Costa Vicentina, the south and west coasts, the central region and East Algarve. The Algarve benefits from a mild climate, fine scenery and easy transport access.

Seasons

The best times for walking are probably the spring and autumn. The winter months see the most rainfall, but spring arrives early; in most years almond trees bloom from January, and from February there are orchids to look out for. In the spring wildflowers add a splash of colour to the countryside.
