Sagres is the most south-westerly resort in the Algarve and in Roman times was part of an area called the Promontorium Sacrum (from whence the name, Sagres, derives). At this time it was believed to be the most westerly part of the world and it was thought that the setting sun off the point made the waters of the ocean boil.
Because of its location people often expect a wind-swept barren landscape, but Sagres is a truly tranquil town with beautiful beaches, a picturesque harbour at Baleeira, a very pretty square, and stunning views. It is very popular in summer with visitors, but all year round with fishermen and surfers because of the western Atlantic waters creating such good waves for surfing.
The location is perfect for walking, cycling, surfing, diving or generally getting a taste of the Algarve that is still relatively untouched by tourism.
