  • Parking possibility for castle

    A good way to get to the castle (if you are good on foot) is to park on the parking down at the main road leading through Aljezur. I have marked the parking on the screenshot of google maps. You might find a place for your car also closer higher on the hill, but I am not sure about this as I didn't focus on that during my visit.

    Surfing is probably the main activity when it comes to Aljezur and the beautiful beaches. Arrifana, Monte Clerigo, Amoreira, Vale Figueiras. These beaches are great for beginners and pros.

    Equipment: Well, a surfboard and some pants, I guess ;-)
    Can be rented at Arrifana Sunset Shop! It is on the way from Aljezur to Arrifana.
