Sagres Birdwatching Festival 2023

One of the most important birdwatching festivals of the year

Thursday 5 October to Sunday 8 October
Algarve Sagres

The Sagres Birdwatching Festival is a superb event on the first weekend of October, which incorporates a fabulous programme of birdwatching and nature activities and is one of the most important events in the world's birdwatching calendar.

In October, thousands of birds fly over the Algarve, en route to wintering grounds in Africa. Join the birdwatchers who flock to the region, and make the most of this incredible sight with days jam-packed with activities in the Sagres area. From birdwatching tours on land and sea to hikes along scenic trails, there are plenty of opportunities for nature lovers to discover there’s more to the Algarve than beaches. And there’s plenty for birdwatchers’ families, too - in addition to the usual bird watching sessions on land and sea, there will be night butterfly watching sessions, tours to observe whales and dolphins and even a fossil hunt in the bunk fort.

There's something for everyone - don't miss it!

The 2023 edition will run from 5th 8th Oct.
