Last week I returned from a beautiful holiday with my family to Portugal. We stayed in a resort near Albufeira and explored a big part of the Algarve by car. The surroundings and views are just gorgeous there, and I took a lot of nice pictures. When this post is published, I’m with my boyfriend in Prague, so I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of the previous vacation. So keep reading if you’d like to see some beautiful Portugal views.
On one of the first days we visited the ‘end of the world’ in Sagres. It’s a huge fort on the most outward corner of Portugal. When the earth was still thought to be flat and small, this was considered to be the end of the earth. And how can you think otherwise with nothing but sea surrounding you? The view was stunning, that’s for sure.
The next day we went to Monchique and the highest point in the Algarve. The view from here was even better! All the rough mountains and the sea in the distance. It’s gorgeous here.
Even though we were staying on the south coast, we also visited the west coast. The difference between these coast lines is drastic, and they’re both equally beautiful. This little trip made for beautiful pictures.
On the final day we booked a little boattrip along the southcoast and we also tried to spot some dolphins. We started in the harbour of Albufeira, which is the most colourful place I’ve ever seen in my life. I didn’t even know I was driving into the harbour at first, because look at these buildings!
I didn’t want to show the people in this picture, since they take away from the beauty of nature, but the people also put in perspective how big this cave actually was.
And I’m ending this article with a picture of an amazing moment: I got to see dolphins in the wild. They are such beautiful creatures, and I wish they weren’t such a tourist attraction, but this did give me the opportunity to actually see one. It was a beautiful moment.
I had a wonderful vacation with my family and I’m very grateful I got to see the beautiful country of Portugal. I really want to go back one day! Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next time!
