So this week I’m in Alentejo’s coast, also known as Costa Vicentina.
In Costa Vicentina its still possible to put your beach towel on the sand without having to ask permission to 100 different people around you like it happens in Algarve.
This coast its still in most of parts in a almost savage state, its even possible to find a beach where you will be alone (even in august).
Beside the beach you can also enjoy some water sports, great food (the so called petiscos alentejanos), some good fresh fish and wonderful shelfish, make sure you try the Carne de Porco à Alentejana (alentejana pork meat) and Migas à Alentejana (its something they do with entrecote and bread).
If you like Golf you can play in different places around the coast, also you can have a poker or black jack night in the newest casino in Portugal in Troia where you can also enjoy the great new marina. If you like to fish there are some really nice spots too in this coast to fish with your family or friends.
But always keep this in mind… further south you go better privacy you will get.
The people as usual around Portugal or can I even say Iberia, are nice and always almost in need of helping you.
