Surroundings: Odeceixe-Praia de Odeceixe, Portugal

Odeceixe is a seaside town in Portugal’s Costa Vicentina region in the northern part of the municipality of Aljezur, in the Portuguese Algarve. This relatively undiscovered destination is a haven for surfers and nature lovers. It’s perhaps best known as a stop along the Rota Vicentina, a network of hiking trails offering sweeping coastal views and pastoral scenery through the Alentejo and Algarve regions of Portugal.

The beach of Praia de Odeceixe is a favorite of both surfers and families.  The Rio de Seixe meets the sea here, looping around to form a horseshoe-shaped beach and calm lagoon.
This lagoon is perfect for swimming and paddleboarding, while the strong waves of the main beach draw a crowd of surfers and sun-worshippers.

The beach is located 3 kilometers from the village of Odeceixe. You can park your car on the southern cliffs. If there is no space, you can park your car on the side of the road.
The area is unspoiled and the landscape surrounding the beach is stunning. On the northern side of the beach there are steep cliffs. On the west side of these cliffs is a big rock that looks like the fin of a shark. This rock is a landmark which makes it easy to recognize Praia de Odeceixe.

The closest towns on both sides of Odeceixe are Rogil (9km), Aljezur (15km) and Lagos (48km) on the South side and S. Teotónio (12km), Odemira (27km) and Vila Nova de Milfontes (42km) on the North side. Here you will find everything you need like bigger supermarkets, cafés & restaurants, bakeries, organic shops and a charming local farmers markets in the weekends.
