Top Monchique Activities to Try

The highest point in the Algarve is in the Monchique area; Foiá stands at 902 m and on a clear day the views are stunning.

As you leave the coast behind and begin to climb upwards every curve in the road brings an agreeable surprise. There are amazing panoramic views down the hills to the resorts below. There are natural springs where you can fill up your bottles with the unique Monchique water said to have healing properties.

Monchique is the ideal spot for a hike or stroll in nature, a bike tour or even a Segway Tour.

On the walking tour or Jeeps Safaris you can visit local crafts shops to see  hand-made wicker baskets, wooden scissor chairs, pottery, wood, cork and copper items.
