Sagres holidays take you to the very edge of Europe in Portugal’s Algarve region. Though close to Cape Saint Vincent in the south west, lying on the southern side of the cape, it is sheltered from the mighty Atlantic Ocean. As well as many sandy coves, ideal for those who wish to relax in the sun, there are long stretches of beach which offer perfect conditions for wind surfing. This particular sport is a year round activity. A Sagres holiday is popular with those who enjoy nature as the area has such diverse flora and fauna. Being on a migratory route, it appeals to bird watchers. Sagres is a town with a long history but unfortunately a massive earthquake in 1755 destroyed most of its medieval heart. The harbour, with its bobbing boats and palm-lined quay, is ideal for an evening stroll with its many bars, cafes and shops. The town beach, Praia da Tonel is a mix of sand and pebble. The waves here can be heavy and currants, strong, so do obey the lifeguard’s flags. Paths along the cliffs offer great panoramic views. From here you can also watch the rather precariously balanced fisherman as they cast the lines from the cliff face. A cheap Sagres holiday is ideal for those who wish to avoid crowded resorts and who enjoy communing with nature.

When choosing board basis, take a look at the all inclusive holidays as they often provide great value and may be a lot cheaper than you imagine.
