From East to West, EuroVelo 1 crosses the Algarve in its entirety, from the Spanish border to Sagres; following over 200 kilometres of coastline! EuroVelo 1 - Atlantic Coast Route in Portugal has something to suit everybody; from sheltered dunes to rocky coves; from tiny bays to vast stretches of open sandy beach; from shallow lagoons to the wild crashing surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Algarve also offers the perfect climate to complement its spectacular shoreline.
