It has an excellent kitesurfing, surfing, and stand up paddle boarding spots in all directions. The Southwest Algarve is a very special place for all kinds of water sports and tours. Located on the tip of land between the south-facing and west-facing coast around Sagres and Lagos, there is always different wind and swell directions just around the corner.
No matter what activity you want to do, kitesurfing lessons, surfing, or stand up paddle boarding in Lagos, the perfect conditions are usually just a short drive away. The rough scenery and unspoiled nature are breathtaking. This region has one of the biggest and best-preserved coastlines in Europe. Some of the most beautiful places are only accessible by water, which makes it extremely exciting to explore this region on top of a SUP board or under a kite.
