Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, the Sines Peninsula is the westernmost point on the entire Alentejo coast. As a result of its connection to the sea, Sines is a port city, traditionally a base for fishing and, in the last few decades, an important deep-water port where there is a major maritime port. However, the good organisation of the territory in Sines means that magnificent scenery can be enjoyed along the coast, practically on the doorstep of the traditional and historical urban centre.
