Zambujeira do mar

Zambujeira do mar

Zambujeira do Mar still remains as one of the last paradises on Alentejo's southwest coast. Its beaches constitute one of its most important attractions, but there is a lot to discover along the coastline, part of the protected area of the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina. On the top of the cliff, the small village, witness, since ancient times, of the population's fishing activities, is the perfect natural terrace to stare at an amazing oceanview.

Here Nature is extremely generous. Dunes are full of crowberries and sea rush. The presence of innumerable bird's species like eagles, egrets, storks, rock-pigeon and long-billed tern are the proof of this ecosystern richness that insists in sustaining a its own balanced development. It is extremely exciting to promenade along the cliffs, or to walk along the tracks used by fishermen.
