Route 26 – Western

It is from this “cradle” of the Portuguese discoveries that you set off on a route replete with history and a taste of adventure. Ride along the long avenue that pays tribute to the glorious reign of the Infante D. Henrique and continue past the Boavista golf course, with its magnificent view over the beach at Porto do Mós. The beauty of Praia da Luz and Burgau is unparalleled and sets the scene for the next part of the ride towards the municipality’s interior. Cross the EN 125 road to reach Almádena, whose appeal rivals that of the characteristic village of Barão de São João. The houses in this little hamlet are almost all painted white and are topped with the traditional “lacy” Algarve chimneys. From here, ride up to Portelas and Odiáxere, until you reach the long sandy Meia Praia beach. The ride ends at Lagos Marina, from where you can admire the impressive city walls.
