The Costa Vicentina Natural Park covers over 74,000 hectares of rolling hills, marshland, imposing cliffs, rocky coves and broad beaches. Declared a protected area in 1995, the park has a hugely rich fauna and flora that varies according to proximity to the ocean. No fewer than 750 species of flora have been identified in the park - 12 of which are unique in the world. Seaweed alone accounts for 460 different species! Over 200 different species of birds have been spotted in the park. The cliffs are a favourite stopping off point for migrating birds and an ideal nesting ground.
