Rock Climbing in Algarve
The Algarve is known as Portugal’s premier tourist region, with its fantastic beaches and surfing facilities. There is limited climbing to be found here but enough if you are looking for somewhere to combine some climbing with other holiday activities. The best crag is at Rocha da Pena, which offers sport routes on good quality limestone rock across all the grades. It is nicely situated just far enough away from the busy tourist regions of Quarteira & Albufeira, yet still quick to reach and is only a short walk from the car.
The other crag of interest is the rocky outcrop of Sagres, which mainly offers steep sea cliff climbing using trad gear, usually in the higher grades. The rock is not always that solid and there is a conflict with the local fisherman who have always fished from the top of the cliffs. However, this area offers some good opportunities for Deep Water Soloing (DWS).
Rock climbing in the Algarve is an unforgettable experience. Mentally and physically, this provides you with a challenge that you will not find elsewhere in Portugal. Rock climbing in the Algarve presents you with an exhilarating mental and physical challenge and a holiday experience you'll never forget. The views are phenomenal, the buzz lasting and far from the milling crowds you can get to grips with the Algarve's wilder side!
Our aim is to introduce you to the real Algarve. We want to take you to the best spots to dive, climb, and swim and show you our favourite local hangouts, restaurants, cafes and bars. We don’t like the feeling of being squished into a tour group with lots of other people, so we don’t want you to feel that way either. Our groups stay private and small so that we can keep things relaxed while making sure that you stay safe and have a great time
