Odeceixe is among the “best undiscovered beaches in the world” according to an online list published by financial news provider Bloomberg.
The picture-perfect beach is one of six choices and is suggested as an alternative to Spain’s Ibiza.
“According to Virginia Irurita, who specialises in custom trips to the Iberian Peninsula, there ‘are no unexplored beaches left in Spain’, but several spots along the Portuguese coast are still ‘wild, beautiful, and empty’. Take Odeceixe (pronounced udd-sesh): It’s set at the juncture of the Atlantic Ocean and the tightly-coiled Ceixe (sic) River, which separates the Algarve from Alentejo,” the publication writes.
“There, you’ll find pristine beaches between the river’s curled banks as well as on the quartz-lined ocean coast – so many of them that you can kayak from one to the next, looking for resident otters or places to avoid human contact.”
Other “undiscovered” beaches recommended by Bloomberg include Zakynthos (Greece), Sint Eustatius (Caribbean), Mancora (Peru), Andamans Islands (India) and Likoma Island (Malawi).
