Along the seashore of Algarve

Another post about Portugal? Well, yes, and this time it's the beautiful seashore of Algarve that we took so many photos of. The list of Algarve beaches is reaaally long, and in 3 days we've spent there we've seen some of them, but we got the general impression- long, sandy beaches beaten by foamy waves, surrounded by steep cliffs, sea painted with a palette which ranges from turquoise to dark blue, and many flowers along the paths. The strong wind is omnipresent, and when I say strong I mean -making it hard to keep your balance strong-, which we experienced for the first time on the Cabo Sao Vicente (the southwesternmost point of Portugal). The view of the giant lighthouse nested on the steep cliffs is impressive, but the wind was so strong that we stayed in the car, drinking portuguese beer and eating snacks. Watching the sun set over that horizon felt like a drive in cinema (whit special 4D effects as our car was literally shaking on the wind).

We spent those 3 days mostly walking, soaking up the salty ocean air, admiring the landscape and taking photos. The towns along the shore are pretty touristy oriented, but we didn't came for towns, we came for nature, and it didn't disappoint. As the pictures speak for themselves, I'm cutting this post short and leaving you to admire these wonderful landscapes.
