Ferragudo in the Algarve is a beautiful area and is also located on the banks of the River Arade. This beautiful place has also managed to keep its identity as a small traditional fishing village and still possesses plenty of charm and tradition.
As with many of Portugal’s villages, the streets are a labyrinth of cobbled streets that go down to the waterfront and also up to the church. The large square is the central point where you will find plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax and also watch the world go by.
If you stroll down to the waterfront you may see the fishing boats returning and also unloading their catch of the day.
The estuary of the river is overlooked by the São João Fort, which is where the beach, Praia Grande begins. Praia Grande is a fantastic beach that is perfect for watersports due to its calm waters. There are also some lovely beach restaurants and also a children’s park along here too.
All in all, Ferragudo is also well known for coastal walks from the village, along to Praia Grande, and along the cliff to the lighthouse. This is heading towards Carvoeiro passing the small cove beaches of Praia do Molhe, Pintadinho and Caneiros. Being cove beaches they pretty much disappear at high tide.
