Flora and fauna in Algarve

The fact that the hinterland of the Algarve is so green is not because of the rain that falls, but because of the many rivers and streams that drain from the mountains to lower areas. That makes the Algarve attractive for all kinds of plants and animals. Many birds come to rest temporarily in the Algarve on their migration to or from Africa, or choose this area as a summer residence or wintering place.

Spring, which in the hinterland of the Algarve means the period between mid-March and mid-May, is the period with the most abundant plant growth and birds come to look for a place to breed during this period. The fields are overgrown with all kinds of wild plants and the birds tumble through the air in large groups. Bee-eaters with their cheerful 'quail quail' come in large numbers to make their nests in the steep banks of the streams and rivers. Suddenly a large size canary piet flashes again between the greenery: the Oriole. Here in the Vale Grande de Baixo you not only hear them ('dieel dieel'), but you also see them regularly. And don't forget the nightingales. They can be heard along the entire stream of the Fonte Santa and the Ribeira de Odelouca, both during the day and at night. This bird feast lasts until about mid-July. Then most birds give up because of the heat and only the real go-getters remain. In the morning and at the end of the day you will encounter them: the blue magpies, the hoopoe, robin wheatear, sparrows and larks, kingfishers, but also larger ones such as cattle egrets, storks, egrets and the (red) partridge.

The landscape of the Algarve is beautifully colored every year by an impressive variety of wild flowers. Spring starts early in the southern part of Portugal and from January the cliffs are in bloom en masse. Typical for the south of Portugal are fig and almond trees, orange trees and carob trees. On the subtropical Algarve coast you can see beautiful blooming oleanders and camellias. You will find eucalyptus forests all along the west coast and often deep inland.

Beautiful butterflies flock to the blooming flowers. In the Algarve you will find many special types. From August to November, dragonflies in all colors of the rainbow also fly everywhere. Furthermore, many hedgehogs and lizards are spotted in the Algarve. The lynx was a loyal inhabitant of the Algarve, but is in the process of extinction due to habitat loss and the decline in the rat population. The Portuguese are now trying to preserve the lynxes with a special program. In the rivers and streams you will find otters, Mediterranean turtles, water snakes and salamanders. The Algarve is also a bird watcher's paradise. The region is on the route of many migratory birds, so you can see a great variety flying around in the beautiful blue sky above the Algarve. There are also a number of species of snakes in the Algarve, but these are not dangerous to humans.

Boat trips in the Algarve

Boat trips are one of the favorite pastimes of tourists going to rest in the Algarve region. If you want to feel like a real navigator, take a ride on a yacht, a pirate ship, visit quaint grottoes, try something new, unique, learn the joy of communicating with dolphins. Those who prefer extreme calmness and adrenaline rush should pay attention to kayaking along the picturesque cliffs with blue lagoons and pristine beaches hidden from most tourists. It is also worth mentioning especially the boat trip to communicate with dolphins - these walks give an incredible boost of energy and joy. You get amazing photos that you can share with your friends and tell about a wonderful vacation spent on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

Diving in the Atlantic Ocean

An irresistible desire for adventure and getting sharp emotions makes many of us get involved in various types of active sports, of which diving is considered one of the most popular. The coast of the Algarve is ideal for diving, and it's not even about the unusually warm water for us. All year round, thousands of tourists flock to the south of Portugal to soar in zero gravity among the turquoise brightness of the underwater world. Scuba diving gives you a unique opportunity to test your strength, gain self-confidence and feel that your life is changing from day to day.

Surfing

Surfers from all over the world come to Portugal to feel the real waves, and beginners find quiet and cozy beaches where they can catch a wave for the first time and join the dream. Judge for yourself: Portugal is the venue for world-class championships, and the city of Ericeira has rightfully received the title of World Surfing Reserve - "World Surfing Reserve". It is considered the best surfing spot in Europe and second in the world, second only to California. The western coast of the Algarve is famous for strong winds and taut waves. Here is the expanse not only for academic surfers, but also for fans of windsurfing, kite surfing and all other varieties for those who like to ride the Atlantic wave.
