First Trip to Portugal

Overview

From Praia da Oura, have a walk on the seashore both in the direction of Albufeira and in the direction of Faro. You will meet very natural places for photo ops. Take time (half a day or more) for a boat trip through Ria Formosa into the islands.Quick Tips: Ask a detailed information about the location of the central bus station because it is not easy to find. I'll give you a hint: it is not far from the fire brigade in Albufeira.Best Way To Get Around: EVA-transportes, bus transport,...Read More

You have a choice of Portuguese cooked seafood plates. The one to taste is especially the local CATAPLAN DE MARISCO. It cost €17.50 for two people. Don't hesitate to order a bottle of vino branco (white wine).

Healthy and tasty plates, like sardines and lambs ribs with salad and other vegetables. Small streets and very friendly people. Ribs were for €9.75 and local fish only €5.

After dinner, in the restaurant near the main pool, follows a swimming show. "New York, New York," "Money makes the world go round (Liza Mineli)," and the French Cancan are some of the acts and songs the public enjoys. Dress, maquillage (makeup), hairstyle, and playback do the rest. You'll have value for money. Book in advance at reception.
