From Vilamoura: Algarve Coast 3-Hour Sailing Cruise

1. From Vilamoura: Algarve Coast 3-Hour Sailing Cruise

Sail for 3 hours around the Algarve Coast aboard an impressive schooner sailing boat and discover picturesque villages, beautiful beaches, and impressive rocky cliffs.   Depart from the Marina of Vilamoura and head west where you can see the extensive beach of Falésia, followed by the fishing village of Olhos d'Agua (eyes of the water). Continuing your journey, the boat slips through the water past all the tiny beaches with their red sand cliffs. Sail past Albufeira, which was a fishing village but now is a vibrant tourist location. Admire the steep cliffs of São Rafael and stunning rock formations. In good sea conditions there is a stop for a swim in the ocean and a visit to one of the sea caves. Feel the splash of the waves and the wind in the sails as the ship start turning around near Galé. Get a chance to help with the hoisting of the sails or assist the captain at the helm. With luck, spot dolphins swimming alongside the boat.

What people are saying about Olhos de Água

Our private trip to Seville with Vanda was very enjoyable. We had a spacious van to ourselves and it was a much better alternative than going on a bus tour. Vanda catered to our needs, provided a lot of great historical information as well as useful tips. Although she didn't accompany us on the tour of the monuments, she provided detailed information leading up to it and was flexible on the pick up points and pick up time, allowing us to fully customize our experience and make the day a unique experience for my family. Seville is beautiful, we will definitely be spending more time there in the future!

This was a fantastic day trip to Seville! We were picked up from the hotel early in the morning and dropped there in the evening. Our tour guide Vanda made sure we were looked after really well during the entire duration of the trip and was very knowledgeable too. She informed us about where to go, how much time to spend at places in Seville. There was fantastic communication at every step of the way. Would highly recommend do this day trip of you fancy something different on the Algarve coast.

Just what we needed! This was a nice relaxing boat trip and an overall lovely experience. Unfortunately it was pretty windy, so we were unable to get too close to the caves to stop for a swim but we enjoyed it just the same. The boat was comfy, the staff were really friendly & informative and the scenery beautiful. It was really good value for money and we would definitely do it again

Fabulous trip. Very relaxing and interesting. Great to see the caves and stacks. Very professional staff.

Fun trip with helpful and informative staff. Very patient too with some less thoughtful travellers
