Disadvantages Irish bars, fast food and tacky tourist shops
Just in case there is anyone who doesn't know, the Algarve is on the coast in Southern Portugal. Most tourists get there by flying to Faro and many of the cheaper airlines fly into Faro. Therre are about a dozen options for hire cars at the Airport so you can select your favourite comapany and then drive off to find your accomodation in the Algarve. Driving seems safe and with the help of our Tomtom we found our way around easily rememberring of course to drive on the right side of the road.The Algarve;
PONTA DE PIEDADE and CABO DE SAO VICENTE:Monday we chose to go westwards from Abufiera towards Lagos and Ponta da Piedade. I was a little worried that this might prove disappointing as by this time my husband was greatly under whelmed by our holiday so far however it proved to be a wonderful spot.
We drove out along the A22 westwards until Lagos and then brown signs took us to the Ponta da Piedade with help from our trusty Satnav. It was beautiful, amazing rocky coast with weathered outcrops and caves. The sea was a wonderfully clear blue/green, the sky blue and then a perfect little sailing boat bobbed about on the sea. It was a truly picture postcard view and there were very few other people to spoil our photos or view. We walked all round the area in the sunshine enjoying the sea air and view before we headed for the little cafe near the car park.
