What is special about the rock climbing in the Algarve espacially in Sagres & Lagos? We say a lot, because we are not an agency we climbed and discouvered all of this lines by ourself!
The limestone formations in the Algarve can be climbed all year round, according to the actual INCF regulations.
Most of the rock climbing areas are set up in the Nature Park 'Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina' (PNSACV), that means that you will be part of one of the most scenic climbing areas in Portugal. In the park a great number of the climbing routes are situated at the cliffs, so imagine nice moves over the azure blue ocean accentuated by the sound of waves and refreshing gust.
Additionally there are great climbing sectors (Navigator Slab, Amacao Nova, Foz de Forno) close to or at the beaches - so have a swim after the rock climbing session. You also should not miss out discovering the inland climbing areas with its rolling hills of Rocha da Peña and the mountainous area of the Monchique. Great views to climb up to! Since the ICNF (Instituo da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas) prohibited climbing at some sectors on the cliffs in the Nature Park for reasons of nature protection, these cannot be used at the moment. The climbing association of the Algarve and the commercial companies are working on a solution for this year round blocking. We keep you in the loop!
