We are reaching mid August now (already!? I know where does time go!!) and sadly our long Summer nights will be ending soon however I did have some splendid moments this summer and I hope you did too! Well this summer I took a trip to the sunny Algarve in Portugal which is located at the very south coast of Portugal and I thought I would share some of my memories here 🙂
As I stated before Algarve is at the south coast of Portugal therefore promising a lot of beautiful sunny beaches and it definitely stayed true to its promise. There were a variety of beaches particularly in Albufeira (where I was and a very popular tourist destination) and the beaches were well equipped with plenty of sun-loungers and beach side bars and cafes looking onto the incredible view.

The food was fabulous and most places were pretty good value. There was two places in particular which I just loved. O Poeta (above) was located in the main strip of Albufeira and was absolutely delicious!! The restaurant specialized in Tex Mex food (my fave!) serving the likes of tacos, burritos and quesadillas. It was well worth the money and left me incredibly full afterwards, as well as being well entertained by a Mexican singer it was great. I also visited an amazing sushi restaurant named Fuji which has to be my favorite sushi experience ever and I love my sushi! The service, presentation and the quality of the food was very much on top!
We all do love a bit of sightseeing when we are on vacation and there is no better way to do it than an open top tourist bus which allowed me to view many great places and see so many amazing features to the beautiful Algarve such as the many interesting roundabouts (above).
How awesome are these sand sculptures!
Overall Algarve in Portugal was fantastic, great value food, cheap and fun night outs, sunny and beautiful (most of the time) weather, lovely people and just a lovely place. I would definitely be up for another trip!
