Sadly Portugal is often overlooked over its neighbour Spain but with those 20 photos to inspire you to visit the Algarve, Portugal will make an entrance on your bucket list!
To be completely honest, my friend and I plans were initially to go to Spain but as I saw some pictures of some dramatic coastlines, stunning landscapes in Portugal and after some of her co-worker recommendation we decided to pick Portugal and more precisely The Algarve.
While Portugal is gaining in popularity, it remains quite an underrated destination, which is sad, as it has a lot to offer and is an amazing budget destination. So here are 20 Photos To Inspire You Visit The Algarve.
20 Photos To Inspire You Visit The Algarve
I decided to continue my summer adventure in September by going to visit Portugal for a couple of days with my friend.
It was basically my last getaway of the summer after I’ve been to Greece a couple of weeks before, and boy I do not regret it, I absolutely loved my time in Portugal.
I’ll definitely be back and I’m sure you’ll consider visiting the Algarve after seeing those beautiful travel photos of the area.
A little carrousel near the beach in Portimao where we stayed during the stay, it’s a perfect place for family!
Also a little further near the cliff it’s a beautiful spot to see the sunset on the beach!
Are you feeling inspired to visit the Algarve and Portugal yet? If yes then make sure to plan an amazing one week in Portugal to hit the Algarve and other amazing areas!
The rocky beach of Benagil where you can find the most beautiful cave, and one famous that you will quickly see on google if you look up at the Algarve and cave.
You can take a hike there and admire the dramatic coastline and clear water from above, it’s also a really fun activity to do in Benagil.
If you’re looking for a great hike in southern Portugal and close to the Algarve you should consider hiking Rota Vincentina for great sceneries as well!
If you’re not too keen on walking and hiking you can take a boat tour to explore the cave and see more of the coastline and lighthouse!
It’s pretty fun to see how some coastline are shaped!
It was a bit complicated to reach on the weekend as there were not many buses scheduled but the Uber there is very cheap we only spent 7€ to go from Portimao to Benagil. So, it wasn’t that troublesome!
As you probably already noticed the Algarve has some beautiful, dramatic coastlines, plenty of beaches and a raw nature perfect for trekking and stunning shots.
Honestly, they don’t even need to be edited as nature there is already beautiful and doesn’t need to be enhanced by anything. It’s a total pleasure to wander for hours, enjoy the moment and takes pictures!
Heart Shaped Cave – How amazing is nature?!
Ponta da Piedade!
A famous cliff spot do go and explore, it’s also a perfect Instagram spot! It’s quite a walk if you do not have a car to reach but it’s pretty enjoyable.
3 of the main cities famous there to stay among tourists are :
Wherever you decide to visit it’s relatively easy to get around cities, by car (the most straightforward way). Or if you don’t have a driver licence -like me- you can get around by bus (be careful with the timetable though!) or by uber, if you’re not travelling solo and split the cost with friends, then it’s cheap.
So, are you feeling inspired to visit yet? Hopefully, the answer is yes!
