This trip couples Portugal’s striking southern coastline with some of the Algarve’s best-preserved buildings. From the pier at Portimao, we’ll whisk you across to one of the country’s most southern points, Cape St Vincent. People have raved about the view from this spot since Roman times – they thought the sunset was magical, and bigger than anywhere else in the world. Next on the itinerary is a visit to Lagos, where you can see the fusion between old and new. The pretty, cobbled streets now play host to boutique shops and cafes, without losing their traditional feel. Last on the agenda is a quick stop at Ponta da Piedade, a maze of sea arches and caves eroded into the coastline. Switch your camera to landscape mode for a few snaps of Lagos Bay, where Lord Nelson once anchored his fleet.
