Monte da Moita Nova


Monte da Moita Nova
Monte da Moita Nova is 200km south of Lisbon, and 80km north of Lagos, close to Cabo Sardão.

A 5-10 minute walk brings you to the Atlantic cliffs from which the local beach is accessible down a flight of steps. Further north the coast has many small bays which you can climb down to, and for those who enjoy walking the vast sand dunes invite your exploration. Fascinating geological formations, and a rich variety of flora and fauna give this coastline a unique character. As well as the storks who nest on the cliffs, many other species of birds can be observed ; the presence of shy mammals like the fox, badger and otter most often signaled by their tracks in the sand.
To see the wild flowers in all their glory, best to come between April and June.

Walks around the cliffs  

The surrounding area
The village of Cavaleiro is only 5-10 minutes on foot , and has shops, cafes and a restaurant. Larger seaside towns with good beaches, shops and restaurants are Almograve, at 8km , Zambujeira at 12km, and Vila Nova de Milfontes at 18 km.

Concelho de Odemira

About 20km inland lies the attractive and well-kept town of Odemira, administrative centre for this area, and typically alentejan in character.
Due to its location, between Lisbon and the Algarve, Moita Nova offers day-trip access to many places of interest, for example the hills of Monchique, Sagres, the most southwesterly point of Europe, Evora, World heritage site, Silves, once the Moorish capital of the Algarve, Santiago with its Roman ruins, and Beja, regional capital.
