Villages

The castle, located at the top of the slope on the river bank, was built in the 14th century to protect the neighboring frontier of the Kingdom of Castile and adapted for the use of artillery in the 17th century. XVII.
Alcoutim is situated at a point where the river no longer resists the rise of the sea. This forced the ancient peoples, who wanted to carry the goods across the river, to wait here until the ebb tide began to descend with their sailing vessels heading for the Atlantic. Because of this, it was necessary to create an infrastructure that would support and protect that activity. Also due to its strategic position on the banks of the river and on the border with the Spanish kingdom of Castile, D. Dinis, King of Portugal (1279-1325), granted a charter to Alcoutim and donated it to the Military Order of Santiago.

Activities

The Natural Reserve of Sapal de Castro Marim and Vila Real de Stº António (RNSCMVRSA) is located in the southeast of the Algarve, near the mouth of the river Guadiana, covering a territory integrated in the two municipalities that give it the name: Castro Marim; and Vila Real de Sto António.

The salt marsh of Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António was the first Nature Reserve created on the Portuguese continent.
The biological interest of the area in its multiple ecological, botanical, ornithological and ichthyological aspects, the archaeological value of the Castro Marim agglomerate, as well as the high sensitivity of the area and its influence on regional economic factors, such as fishing, saliniculture and of tourism, were the reasons invoked in the diploma that creates the Reserve.

From the viewpoint that is the castle of Castro Marim, built by Alfonso III in 1242 and around which the village grew, one can admire the curious reticulated landscape, mixed estuary, marshes, brackish water bodies, salinas, pastures , puddles, props and extensions without vegetation.
A geometry of lands and waters to which the mirror of the salty confers unforeseen reflexes. Nowadays, saliniculture, fish farming, agriculture and fishing share the essential part of the exploitation of natural resources.
The Natural Reserve is confused with the marsh which extends along the Guadiana, between Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António, a flat area with low altitudes, furrowed by a network of steers that ensure drainage and open to salt water. The dominant monotonous green alinda is in the spring with the red with which the Mesembryanthemum nodiflorum covers the slopes of the salinas. The highest areas have spots of Mediterranean maquis.
The steers are prime spot for breeding fish and crustaceans. Castro Marim serves as a habitat or simple refuge for the large population of water birds, namely the Stilt Himantopus himantopus and the tailor Recurvirostra avosetta. The white stork Ciconia ciconia stands out by the number of occupied nests. Also present were summer birds, the case of the flamingo Phoenicopterus roseus and the dwarf tern Sternula albifrons, and wintering birds, such as the limosa littoral tortoise and the common prairie Calidris alpina.
In the near coastal dunes one records the occurrence of Chamaeleo chamaeleon chameleon, observable in certain sections of the Algarve coastal strip and even in the barrier islands of Ria Formosa.

Beaches

For many years, Manta Rota beach was just a small fishermen’s village. However, this beach is in present day a very famous beach, due to its tepid peaceful waters. It is one of Europe’s longest beaches, placed in the borderline between the open sea, the dunes and the barrier islands of Ria Formosa.

Beaches

Praia da Fábrica, also known as Praia de Cacela Velha, was considered one of the best in the world by the Spanish edition of the magazine «Condé Nast Traveler».
The top 15 of the world's best beaches were prepared by the magazine's journalists, each having chosen their favorite.
In the case of Praia da Fábrica, Sara Morillo wrote: "Since 2006, every summer I have escaped to the border between Huelva and the Algarve. Then I discovered what I feel today as "my beach". Maybe she's not the prettiest (who is) or so virgin like that, but that's the metaphor of my happiness. "
The journalist adds that the beach is next to Cacela Velha, "a beautiful village where the sunsets of the Algarve are contemplated".
And he explains: "Access to the beach has its liturgy: you park the car next to a tiny anchorage. There, a place welcomes you in your boat to take you to a deserted island of white sands and infinite shores. Around, in the only restaurant on the dock, you can taste the conch and oysters of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. And until then I can read ».

What they say

Great camp / caravan park on the Algarve very near to Spain. Not your average park. 4km to beach. Sea view from park. Been coming here 3 years now . Nice people and great part of the world.

Ian McNally

What a find, a beautiful park in a great real life setting close to the beaches, but not in the touristy hub of it. Very friendly people both staff and home owners. We love it here, and this is where we want to call home in a few years.

Jack Doe

Here we are close to everything but in a quiet and rural place away from all the hustle & bustle. We love the people and the surroundings, in fact we know more people here than in Rotterdam!
