Boulders and Beaches
Many of the cliffs along the Lagos shore in the western Algarve have dramatic cliff walks where you (carefully) trek along the path. The views are spectacular. The birds fly high in the blue skies, the fishing boats ply the waters, and the air is clear and clean. I felt invigorated when I walked along one path above a huge cliff. I watched the fishermen and the pleasure boaters. That typical azure Portuguese sky above the turquoise waters was a stunning sight.
The western Algarve with its rugged cliffs and rocky paths is a favorite Portuguese region of mine that I have visited a few times.
The weather is ideal, the restaurants serve delicious traditional Portuguese meals ( especially sea food), and the beaches are ideal.
