Costa Vicentina, Europe’s last wild coast
"At the very tip of south-west Portugal lies Costa Vicentina, the last wild coast in Europe, an untouched surfer enclave between Alentejo and the Algarve where the crashing waves drown out the hubbub of the world. Its remarkable beaches - wide and wild, all dunes and cliffs and big Atlantic waves - are some of the loveliest in the world” words by Paul Richardon for www.cntraveller.com
Surf Shanti lies in the untouched Costa Vicentina in Portugal. This stunning region extends from the most South West town of Portugal - Sagres – till the region Alentejo. It’s an outstretched wild coast of pristine abundance that combines authenticity, nature, rurality and amazing waves – the perfect place to wander, surf, SUP, kayak, hike or bike around. Time doesn’t hit fast in the tranquil small towns of Aljezur and Carrapateira where you can still taste the traditional Portuguese life where fishermen, shepherds and farmers alike share tales with surfers and nature lovers. The Costa Vicentina offers a natural and serene refuge in a region combining fields, mountains, hills, cork trees and the sea.
It’s the right place for culinary lovers. Plan a wine-tasting or go to one of the fish restaurants near the beaches. Also, the Costa Vicentina is a well known surf and yoga enclave. They call it the "California of Europe" and "Europe's best answer to Bali"
