Enjoy the cuisine
Salema’s restaurants are really authentic – converted fisherman houses transformed into cosy eateries. Try salty sardines soaked in lemon, or charcoal-grilled chicken in spicy sauce.
Laze on the beach
Salema’s Blue Flag beach is a half-mile crescent of powder-soft sand. It’s brilliant for windsurfing and one of the Algarve’s sleepiest swathes.
Get back to nature
Costa Vicentina Natural Park is well worth exploring, and one of the best-preserved coastlines in Europe. Its pristine beaches and craggy cliffs are a wildlife hotspot.
