Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    This tour starts in Albufeira old town and soon you will be into quiet unspoiled countryside, passing Sir Cliff Richard’s famous vineyards in Guia, and along pleasant country lanes to the coast. Passing by the Salgados Lagoon, you should see a variety of bird life and maybe a turtle or two swimming in the lakes. Your ride here is along specially constructed boardwalks, which makes for easy cycling. With the high rise resort of Armação de Pera in the background, and the traditional old town of Pera nearby, you continue east through the golf resort of Salgados, finding more board walks as you continue east along the coast with lovely views down to some great beaches.

    As the coast gets rockier you'll stray a little inland away from the cliff edge and then cruise down to the colorful new marina on the edge of Albufeira. Through the Marina and onward up a small hill, you can now see the spectacular main beach of Albufeira. Carefully navigating a few narrow cobbled streets of the old town, you will soon be back at your starting point by the old bus station.

    The tour was more difficult then we understood of the discription at Tripadviser. We passed beautiful views but there was no time to stop and admire them. We were guided while biking, so only the first could hear. I think that you must be well trained if you consider to take
