Praia da Alagoa

Reviewed By Gearoid O O - Athlone, Ireland

We first visted Alagoa in 1990, the beach is still very recognisable. We walked up from Manta Rota recently - a nice walk. The beach is serviced and is a nice place for families etc. We didn't get as far as checking out the restaurants but we were tempted. These expansive Beaches are amongst the best in the Algarve.

Praia da Manta Rota

Reviewed By MrSmall - Redhill, United Kingdom

Nothing to see here folks,just miles of clean fluffy sand and a very rough,murky sea. If you like that sort of thing,fine. I prefer small pebble filled coves with Crystal clear water, like you get in the Greek Islands. Ok,but no cigar.

Castelo de Castro Marim

Reviewed By Ray V - Chaves, Portugal

This castle, which played such an important role in the defense of Portugal from a possible invasion from Spain, has been sadly left in a state of abandonment. There is a good view of the white houses of the town below but inside the walls there isn't really much to see. We were here during a medieval fair and the central part was taken up by stands selling drinks and typical foods. At least the entry fee is cheap, less than 2 euros if I recall.

Fort of Cacela

Reviewed By ItalianChicken1 - Paso Robles, California

Maybe it was closed for the winter which is understandable in February. It looked interesting and we may have gone in if it were open. Nice little village to explor4e and amazing views of the coast line. Check this small village out.

Praca Marques de Pombal

Reviewed By Scottieboyuk - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

lovely little town, that has been well looked after and all the restaurants have the same font, thats a nice touch. Slightly touristy in places but in true Portuguese style it does not get in the way, just relax enjoy the feel of the place.
Worth the visit and enjoy.
