When full-time nomad Jocelyn Garwood found herself in the beautiful Algarve in wintertime, she was fascinated with the skyscapes of sunrise and sunset. The beaches of Algarve is a perfect to witness both phenomena, as you have unobstructed views to the south.
Within minutes, the sky changes and reveals different colours, and Jocelyn shows us with her photos how nature is so beautiful it almost makes a mockery of art.
There are just so many incredibly beautiful beaches in Algarve that we quickly gave up on the idea to make a Top10 list. We simply couldn’t decide on only 10.
Whether you’re looking for small, cave-like beaches where you can live out your “Blue Lagoon” fantasy, or endless stretches of sand where the kids can cavort in the shallow waves, Algarve is the answer to all your prayers.

The coastal hiking path “Trail of the Headlands” was inaugurated in 2018. Just like its sister trail; The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail, this route offers amazing views of the unique seascape in southern Portugal.
It’s our 2nd favourite hike in Algarve and will bring you close to dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches and natural sculptures. It may be a stretch to declare it a walk on a cloud, but it’ll definitely get you closer to the heavens.
