Fishing - as well for the professional as also for the amateur!
Most fishermen know that the waters of the Atlantic along the Portuguese coast are some of the most unspoilt and clean of Europe. You can train your skills by trying to catch various types of Marlin, Swordfish, Tuna and Bonitos, Mako and Blue Shark. Large Bass, Conger and various types of Bream are also widely present....... For amateurs and fishermen who want a less straining type of fishing, we also organise short fishing trips. With these trips fishing for example for mackerels or garfish is more suitable, freshly grilled these fish are very tasty!!!
Departure these trips is the little harbour of Ferragudo. In accordance with type of fishing we will reach the fishing grounds in 30 minutes – 1,5 hours. Equipment can be arranged against a small fee. Bait for the specific types of fishing can be arranged on request, not included in prices.
Especially for groups of (male) fishermen we can recommend the accommodation "Holiday Farm"
