Some of the most unusual and fascinating sights in the western Algarve are the steep cliffs towering over the beaches. Each cliff is different in size and shape. Some are huge and imposing.
I had wanted to see as many as possible, so on two different trips to the Algarve, I managed to visit about seven different beaches. I searched the maps and we drove around for days. We spent time each day sitting under an umbrella as the sun warmed us. The birds sang. The huge white puffy clouds floated in the blue sky.
There are some amazing rocks, boulders, and cliffs at these beaches. Surfing, sunning, swimming, boating, fishing, and horseback riding are very popular.
Each beach had a restaurant serving fresh seafood and good regional Portuguese food.
