A day with a Cruise bus:



Discover great spots within a short distance



The Algarve is the most southerly province of Portugal. It covers about 200 by 60 kms. The climate is very mild and nice & warm in summer. There is always a bit of wind, so it never gets too hot.

The Algarve is perfect to explore with the bus. You don't have to spend a lot of time behind the wheel, because you can find many things at a close distance: from surf beaches to historic towns, beautiful nature and much more. We ask you to stay in the Algarve.

Surfing

The west-coast of Portugal is known for its surfing beaches. With the boards on the camper van you can find the perfect waves that suit your surfing best.

Sagres is the most westerly town of the south coast and famous for its many surf beaches. North from Sagres starts a huge variety of beaches: beach brakes, point brakes, right- or left hand brakes. Let us know if you want to know more, Marcel is happy to tell you all about it...

Soon to swim in the deep smile of the moon
Awake all day to see the blue wave curl and break





The Algarve is a great spring, summer & autumn destination for surf & travel, while you're based in your house on wheels....
Summer starts early here, with plenty of warm & sunny days in February and March.



Surfing-luxury You've got your house with you, so get the table and chairs out and prepare your after-surf dinner.
It's very relaxing to watch the waves before or after a good surf and meet other surfers who can tell you more about other beaches they have seen.


Beaches

Algarve: the whole south coast of Portugal has beautiful beaches for sunbathing and swimming and stunning rocky cliffs where you can walk from one village to the next.

The west coast starts at Sagres. This unspoiled coast is really nice discover with the Cruise bus. Here you can find those villages with old ladies without teeth. There are lovely small restaurants and cafes, and the weather...the Algarve has a very good climate, so the weather is basicly good most of the time.
