Riding the Beaches of the Algarve

We can tailor make this trip for you

What we love About Riding the Beaches of the Algarve

We love...The Luxury Quinta do Lago Resort
This accommodation is in the perfect position to head out into Algarve and explore the area. The resort's brand new 'Campus' provides full size tennis courts, padel tennis courts, beautiful pools, a football pitch and more.
We love...The Views
Located in the southern most part of Portugal, the Algarve is a picturesque region known for its golden beaches and quaint fishing villages. The glorious views over the Atlantic create a peaceful, relaxing holiday destination.
We love...Year Round Sun
There is never a bad time to visit the Algarve as it offers year round sunshine. The autumn months of September and October are a great time to visit but if you're looking for some temperate winter sunshine, a warm Spring or Autumn cycle or a hot summer, the Algarve rarely lets you down

Today is a day to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Algarve. Ride from the resort out through the lagoon and continue riding along the Praia de Faro. Enjoy lunch in one of the many cafes and restaurants on the beach before riding back to the resort. Have a stop at the Beach Shack on the way home and take a canoe out on to the lake or just relax on the white sands before heading back to the Campus in the resort for a coffee as the sun goes down.

Day 4The Shack

Today you can spend a day off the bike and explore this exclusive resort. Head down to the Campus for a croissant and coffee before a lesson in padel tennis on one of the newly built courts. You can ride around the resort or head down to the Shack that overlooks the lake. It’s a real suntrap so enjoy some of the watersports on the lake or just relax on the beach.
