I love this region of Portugal with wild beaches, with few people even in August, the food, the views, the nature. If you like peace and nature, this is the right place for you.

We had a 7 days stay in Odeceixe. I started every day with a run along the beautiful cliff coast in this area. I ran several times from Odeceixe to Praia Carvalhal. Never a dull moment. Spectacle views and beautiful nature.
