The Amazigh (and, no, the name wasn't supposed to read 'amazing'), is a rare find in the Algarve. Right at the south western extremity of the region, in wild surfer territory, Aljezur, few tourists venture this far from Faro. Beyond Sagres and slightly up the western coast, this paradise was very welcome by two discerning travellers, us, who had just spent week trawling through some of the Algarve's busiest spots. The Amazigh in itself is a comfortable hostel run by two surfers with dorms and private rooms. About 10 minutes away, the guys also rent four villas for larger groups. The idyllic Aljezur village is a good reason to come to the area if peace and quiet, and wild sweeping empty beaches are what you are after. Not quite luxurious, the rooms here are comfortable. The hostel is largely self-catering.
