Portuguese wanderings

Portugal

We are back from our summer travels.  This year we chose Portugal.  We used to holiday in the Algrave often, when the children were small, but hadn’t been back in 11 years.  I was afraid we’d find it much changed.  Certainly, the Algrave is very much discovered.  It already was back in 2002 and the spread of tourism that was marching inexorably West from Faro has reached a little further now.  But the extreme South Western tip, at Sagres, still retains its off-beat, surfing vibe, and the wild West coast beaches are just as glorious as I remembered.   This is one of my favourite sunset spots, Praia do Castelejo.

  1. Think this year might be the first year I don’t go to Portugal since I was about 6 months old! Such a beautiful country, and YES, that coastline is absolutely gorgeous. If you actually stick to the western coast and just go north it gets even more stunning. Leave the Algarve behind and head north into the countryside or up the coast and you’ll see some stunning scenery.
