The Algarve region
The Western Algarve is widely regarded as home to some of the best beaches in Europe. It is an area of stunning natural beauty with rugged mountain landscapes and coastlines frilled with rocky coves and fantastic sandy beaches, providing a treasure trove of secluded bathing spots and scenic walks, often unsignposted and hidden from the road by high sand dunes making every one an amazing discovery for the intrepid explorer.
Needless to say this sun-drenched coastline is perfect for outdoor pursuits such as tennis, horse riding and bird-watching. It is a haven for watersports enthusiasts who enjoy yachting and windsurfing and a true golfers paradise with numerous championship golf courses on offer. But for those of you who simply want to relax and unwind, the Algarve's almost tropical climate boasts over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year making it ideal for sun worshippers.
And for those of you interested in the regions rich culture and history you won't be disappointed. Discover quaint villages set on the seafront or tucked away in the hills, the charming walled port of Lagos with its handsome marina and 17th century Fort, the lovely spa town of Caldes de Monchique is well worth a visit and ancient Silves with its Moorish castle. Further west lies the historic town of Sagres and cliff top Cape St Vincent, Europe's most southerly point amongst many, many more.
Salema is a small traditional Western Algarve fishing village nestled in a secluded bay with calm blue waters surrounded by dramatic sun baked ochre cliffs. It lies midway between Sagres and Lagos, just over an hours drive from Faro International airport.
An unspoilt jewel in Portugal's Algarve Coast, Salema is set in an area of stunning natural beauty offering holiday makers a perfect place to relax and unwind and enjoy its sandy beaches, restaurants, cafe's, bars and shops. It has a wide, sheltered bay making the long stretch of beach ideal for swimming and water sports. Like many of the beaches along this stretch of coast, it has 'Blue Flag' status and was voted the 2nd best beach in Portugal by a European Travel magazine. On the beach you will find plenty of shaded sunbeds and traditional brightly coloured fishing boats with their catches of bream, mackerel, sardines and sea bass often appearing in the local restaurants the same day.
Salema has several bars and restaurants with even more just a short drive away, all offering wonderful freshly cooked food at affordable prices served with warm local hospitality. For your self catering needs, there are two small supermarkets which cater for most, if not all, of your basic needs. The friendliest is Romero's located right next to the Boia Bar.
