Coastline Eco-via

Spring, Fall and Winter.

Suitable for cycling, the eco-via extends over 214 km, connecting Cape St. Vincent to VRSA and crossing 12 municipalities, putting the Algarve firmly on the European Greenways map. 

In Tavira, the city of 37 churches, the last path that will pass through Cacela Velha begins, an unmissable stop to admire one of the best views of the Ria Formosa. Manta Rota, Altura and Monte Gordo are other places to visit before arriving in Vila Real de Santo António. It is here next to the old Customs that the Ecovia do Litoral ends, or perhaps it is the beginning of a new discovery, since this is also the starting point of the Great Route of the Guadiana (GR15)  that can take you on other adventures in the Algarve ...

This Ecovia is part of the European Eurovélo Network, the network of cycling routes that covers the entire European continent, being a stretch of Route nº 1 - Atlantic Coast Route - between Sagres in the extreme southwest of Europe and the Northern Cape in Scandinavia. Its layout, consisting of five sections, follows existing cycle paths, rural paths and in some cases parallel paths to the National Road 125, showing magnificent landscapes along the coast.
