When visiting Monte Maravilhas it can be nice to explore the area. Of course, if you are enjoying our property, feel free to stay and relax.
If you have a craving to go sight-seeing, you might want to go to Porto Covo. This little beach town is located about an hour away from Monte Maravilhas by car. And it’s worth it.
The town itself is quite authentic. Little Portuguese houses and the main street where you’ll be able to do some shopping or have lunch or dinner.
After you’ve done the main street, you’ll find yourself a little beach and a fishing harbor. If you are looking for some beach time it might not be the ideal place, but don’t worry, a bit north of the village you’ll find many beaches.
The town itself can be quite touristic in the summer. Therefore, we always recommend visiting this village before July or after August.
And then, for the beaches.
As we’ve mentioned, when you leave the village to the north, you’ll find some amazing beaches.
Almost all of these beaches have a restaurant or a bar, so you don’t have to be worried about taking a lot of drinks or food along with you. You won’t starve or get dehydrated. That is of course if you decide to hydrate yourself in time!
The downside of these little restaurants and bars is that almost all of them are closed during the winter. From November until March they’ll be closed and then it’s better to take a drive up to Sines or Porto Covo if you’d like to grab a bite.
