The Costa Vicentina, Algarve, is the wild west of Portugal, with some of the most dramatic beaches, coastal scenery and the best places to surf in all of Portugal. It is one of the least developed stretches of coastline in Europe.

Bounded by cliffs, Odeceixe Beach is a generous strip of sand and sits between the sea and the freshwater. You can even find small lakes that are perfect for bathing and are much appreciated by the youth. The vibe of this small surfer village, with its easy-going surf and beach lifestyle, made Odeceixe the perfect location to shoot the shell collection.

Our girls, Sara and Sofia, enjoyed a beautiful beach day in Odeceixe, wearing our eco-friendly bikinis, made from recycled plastic. A perfect match!
