But apart from our perfect climate, what else can you find here?

With a population of less than 500 inhabitants, we’re proud to say that Raposeira is one of the most peaceful and friendly communities in the whole of the Algarve!

Surf and Beaches, Beaches and Surf!
From the crossroads at Raposeira you can head straight to Praia do Zavial, the most consistent surf break on the South coast, and Praia da Ingrina is directly around the corner. Both these beaches have a restaurant overlooking the ocean and you can wander along cliff-paths and tracks for some beautiful off-roadexploring, on foot or by bike.
Beach transfers are free for guests of the Good Feeling Hostel and as we’re right in the middle of the west and south coast, we’ll always take you to where the best waves are, every day!
Raposeira is steeped in history – with connections to the Templar Knights and Infante Dom Henrique, known as Henry the Navigator, who is reputed to have died in his residence in the village in 1460.
From before his time, a number of Menhirs (Standing Stones) dotted the landscape in the area, one of which remains standing by the side of the road to Praia da Ingrina.
Raposeira is within the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, perfectly placed for you to explore the rural and unspoiled surroundings, where a wide variety of flora and fauna thrive.
