Centro Náutico de Monsaraz

Water Sports in Monsaraz

On the shore of Alqueva Lake, this nautical centre hires out kayaks, paddleboards, or tiny sailboats for a leisurely jaunt out on Europe's largest artificial body of water. You can also arrange sailing excursions (per hour €10) – though there's a six-person minimum. The centre has a beach and a cafe, both of which draw quite the crowd on warm days.

You can also rent bikes (€25 per day). It's 5km east of Monsaraz.
