Travel to the Praia Almograve Beach
Almograve is 14km from Vila Nova de Milfontes (largest beach town of the region), 20km from Odemira (the region capital) and 195km from Lisbon. Most visitors who head to Almograve are based within the pretty fishing town of Vila Nova. The journey is relatively easy but requires a rental car as public transport options are too limited for a day trip. From Vila Nova follow the N395 south over the bridge, after 7.8km turn right at the roundabout onto Avenue de Praia and as the name suggested follow this to the end (3.5km) to arrive at the Praia (beach).
