A small town that relies upon its wonderful landscape to entice tourists, Praia da Vitoria has gone relatively unnoticed among the exponential growth of Portugal’s coastal resorts. Challenging walking trails dominate much of the coastline, providing stunning views of the surrounding water and towering mountainside. If simply walking doesn’t wet the active appetite, rope adventures allow adrenaline junkies the chance to scale the rock formations and climb under the guidance of qualified instructors. To continue the thirst for adventure, many brave the water in a kayak or canoe, evoking an arduous workout, particularly in the summer amid a warm climate.
The entire town may exude a vibe that only adheres to the active traveller, yet there is plenty of places that are perfect for whiling away a relaxing few hours. Praia dos Biscoitos is a haven drenched in looking spots and tranquil bays that seemingly act as a forcefield from the stresses of the modern day. Swim amidst the striking mountains before admiring the gorgeous scenery that encompasses Praia da Vitoria – for a sleepy day in the sole company of friends and family – the beautiful mountainside is ideal.
The pleasant weather and environment is made for a leisurely stroll, especially considering the laid back nature.
