Location

Albufeira, Faro, Portugal

I love the beaches , that everything is close by. Easy access to highways, all roads lead to Albufeira, the center of the Algarve.

Very affordable, no parking meters. The beach is just down the hill Praia dos Pescadores, (Fishermen s beach). There is a market close by with fresh local produce, fresh fish daily. Portuguese won t touch yesterday s catch, no fresh fish on Sundays. Two supermarkets, and small shopping center with all the services one would need. all within walking distance.

A restaurant with takeout homemade portuguese food, bread, (Adega do David), a friendly lounge, Havana bar, with wifi and great Mojitos for 3.50 euros. Both Just across the street.

Algarve Shopping is a large open air concept Mall where you can shop till 11 pm in the evening. Banks, restaurants, bars, niteclubs are plentiful.

The old town with small cobblestone streets is lively. The beach has great restaurants overlooking the ocean for an English breakfast, fresh seafood. Very affordable, a short walk down the hill.

My favourite beach hut is called appropriately enough "the spot". walk straight down to the beach and walk left past Inatel hotel, it is the next hut over. Great view,very relaxing, surrounded by a red clay cliff dotted with Umbrella pine trees and cactus plants.

If you have a car some of my favourite beaches are a short drive:

Heading west, Praia ( Beach ) Evaristo, is a small beach with an upscale restaurant and a perfect spot to catch the sunset with a bottle of Vinho Verde (Slightly Sparkling semi sweet/dry Portuguese wine).

Praia da Gale, Villa Joya boasts a restaurant with 2 Michelin Stars to reserve for dinner two weeks in advance. (phone number hidden). my favourite spot the Chiringuito bar is reopening on a cliff overlooking the sea and their full moon parties are back! This beach bar never closes it is open 24 hours. It is hidden and you must find the hidden path along the cliff to get there.

A little further west Salgodos beach boasts sand dunes and a virgin stretch of beach where nudity is permitted but not abundant, so if you see a little too much don t be surprised. Great for a run in the morning or sunset, midday if you can handle the heat.

all within 15 minute drive.

Keep heading west to praia da Marinha just west Porches a spectacular beach at the bottom of a cliff with a cool little beach hut snack bar. Jose Mourinho has a resort nearby and summers not too far away.

A little further west and you come to Lagos and Dona Anna beach . Hire a boat and discover hidden beaches and caves, Fantastic!

A little farther west and you hit Sagres, and Tonel beach which almost always has great surfing. Rent a board on the way into town. Visit Prince Henry the navigator s famous military sailing school where Christopher Columbus attended. Catch the sunset at the end of the world where steep cliffs dive straight into the ocean at Europe s southwestern tip and the most powerful lighthouse in Europe.

88 km away about an hour drive


Heading East:

Praia da Oura is a small beach surrounded by restaurants, hotels night clubs and sits at the end of "The (email hidden)ly street, very touristy and fun if you are not too discerning. It has the best niteclub in the Algarve on the road to Praia da Oura, Capitulo IV.

Next up Falesia beach. Stunning red clay cliffs with Umbrella pines at the top. a virgin stretch of beach that end s at the Villa Moura Marina. Pine cliffs hotel and golf course is a good place to access the beach by elevator.

Continuing west, Villa Moura an upscale planned neighbourhood, Christiano Ronaldo has a summer home there. there are no beaches but there is a marina, Casino and golf courses. Kadok Disco sits at the entrance to Villa Moura an 8 000 person capacity complex that only opens in the summer. The niteclub at the casino, BlackJack, has a good ladies night every Thursday throughout the year.

A little more west Val do lobo beach. This is the Beverly Hills of Portugal and has the most expensive real estate in the country. It boasts a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, Monte Rei, which is pricey and among the top courses in Europe.

Heading west we hit Faro and the islands. Take a boat trip to Ilha do Faro and go off the beaten path. It feels like you re somewhere completely different, lost on an island away from everyone.

30 km away

Tavira and it s famous salt production. Pick up some artisan sea salt.

keep heading East and you ll hit Seville. The most cliche Spanish town. With it s orange trees, Sevilanna ( Flamenco ), Tapas, sweet Jerez wine ( Sherry ), Bull fighting ring (the whole town watches live and on tv), Siesta, it is the hottest place in Europe, unbearable in the afternoon. 55 Degrees Celsius.... La Feria in April is well worth the visit.
