Blue Coast Ride
Alentejo / Blue Coast Portugal

The Costa Azul or "the Blue Coast" is the southern stretch of Portugal’s western coastline, and is as long and beautiful as the popular Algarve. However, on the breath-taking Costa Azul there is one of the rarer deserted beaches, a place where you do not have to worry about mobs of tourists and their hustle and bustle.

Ride across old paths through the virgin landscape of southwest Portugal - through vast valleys to the Atlantic shore with rocks and dunes, inviting for a refreshing canter. Overnights are excellent in country hotels with traditional gastronomy. Experience empty sand dunes and beautiful landscape of the Blue Coast on horseback.

Magnificent horses and above average accommodation make this ride one of the top riding vacations in Europe.  If you want to experience Portugal and avoid the crowds of the Algarve, the Blue Coast is the destination for you!
