Vigia das Baleias

Situated in Algarvia, along the main road, this place once had a whale watch post. We find there the reproduction of a former lookout post and a niche of homage to Senhora de Fátima.

The viewpoint is endowed with snack huts, barbecue grills, sanitary facilities and an outdoor physical maintenance circuit. The Whale Watcher offers a superb view of the sea and the north coast.
