Was last here in the late 80's, don't remember it being so built up but that could be dementia. Managed to get a free game of golf with a couple of expat's and broke 100, doing the back 9 on Wednesday. After conversing with locals and expats the concencus is,

Sardines are cheap as chips

Last time I was in Albufeira it was very hot as well. It was when Portugal won the Euros but we were on a family holiday and the waiters stopped working during the Portugal semi final! I first went to Faro in 1970 when there were more tractors and donkey carets in Faro than cars which has changed somewhat. We prefer to go early March these days when there is plenty of cheap rooms and less traffic. The stretch from Faro to the Spanish border is the best part.

Stayed at Salema few years back, couple of nice restaurants there
Really liked Lagos until my Mrs proposed to me there, sort of ruined the rest of the holiday and the rest of my life come to think about it!!!!

Hire yourself a car - Drive around to the next bay (Westwards) to GALE Beach.

Lovely7 and clean - Nice Cafe - Not overcrowded - and you can then as far as you want along the water's edge in the lovely warm clean Atlantic.

Idyllic ... and good for your feet too   Happy

I was also there in 2010 - willie - Mid-late May.

It must have been you I saw being thrown out of the Irish Pub, just off the Old Square.

Excellent Rock Band playing in the Square, too.

No - willie - It was you - wearing that floral frock that you once tried to blag your way into Royal Ascot wearing.

Went again - same time in May - in 2013 - and saw some of the aftermath on the Complex I was staying at - along with tales of same.

Remember drinking on "the strip" in albufeira...
Sambucca and lemonade, the lemonade was more expensive than the Sambucca, so switched to neat Sambucca...
I'm a real ale man when home, no bitter available, didn't like the Portuguese lager...
Hangover from hell a few days
