Coasteering appeared as a sport after the second half of the 20th century. When a group of climbers decided to explore the coast over the rocks. It got popular very fast and the sport got his name. The word “coasteering” first appeared in the book “Sea Cliff Climbing” where the author believes that the sport would get even more popular and a bright future. In the 90 the first Coasteering companies started to appear in Wales. To practice this sport, experience is not required, the only requirement is to feel comfortable in the water, this is what makes this sport ideal for children and adults.
Coasteering is a nature adventure sport activity that consists on exploring the coast, over the caves and sea by swimming, climbing, jumping and hiking.
Based on cliff jumping and Snorkeling, COASTEERING ALGARVE is a new project from AXN WELLNESS COMPANY, that allows you to explore on a different way the coast of the Algarve and the Vicentine Coast National Park between Lagos and Sagres.

No, not at all. You don’t have to do any of the jumps if you don’t want to. You will always be given the option to challenge yourself, whether that is a small jump or large but in no way will you have to do any part of the Coasteering that you don’t want.
