Why the Western Algarve?
Proud to be the least developed region of Portugal, the Western Algarve is the perfect escape destination. Away from the built-up hotel complexes, over developed towns and tourist crammed beaches, our little spot in the Algarve is ideal for those looking for a beautiful and unique holiday experience.
With incredible stretches of protected national parks, pristine beaches, wild and unspoilt coastlines and impressive cliffs and rock formations, the Western Algarve is the perfect backdrop to your activity holiday!
Be sure to check our 5 Top Beaches, Restaurants and Activities in the area. Great for planning an unforgettable holiday in the sun.
Praia da Luz
The AltaVista Surf and Adventure Lodge is in the pretty seaside town of Luz. With stunning views from the terraces, spanning from the mountain range of Monchique to the Sea.
We are just a 10 minute walk down to the Blue Flag beach and town. With fantastic cafés, restaurants and bars all in easy reach, there’s no need for car hire.
If you’re looking for a lively night out, Lagos is less than 10 minutes away by bus and taxi. Boasting the best bars and nightlife in the area, it’s within easy reach but you’ll be excited to head back to the tranquil location of the Lodge for a great nights sleep!
Getting to Us
We are just an hour from Faro Airport. With many low cost airlines flying here throughout the year, you’ll be surprised at how cheaply you can get to the sun!
Seville (Spain) is a short 2.5 hour drive to us – brilliant stop off if you want to enjoy endless tapas and explore the beautiful cobbled streets. Best to avoid in July and August, with temperatures reaching a balmy 50ºc.
Lisbon is 3 hours drive from us, or 4 hours by train or bus to Lagos. Many of our guests enjoy a night or two in the city before venturing south for the beach!
