Algarve in 20 photos – 20 Photos that will make you travel to Algarve Portugal

Chances are that you have heard plenty about the beauty of Portugal and its vibrant cities, but not so much about the real gem: Algarve. Here are 20 photos that will make you travel to Algarve Portugal.

We never expected to discover such beautiful landscapes in Portugal. We already LOVED Porto & Lisbon but Algarve surprised us in many ways. Here is Algarve through our eyes as we share 20 of our favorite pictures that I took during our trip down to the south of Portugal.

First, getting there.

We drove down from Lisbon to Sagres which took about 4 hours on the highway. The moment we got onto the smaller road of Algarve, the ride became an attraction in itself.

Algarve has a blooming natural reserve where we recommend that you stay. Most tourists go east of Lagos towards all the high-end resorts, but if you’re reading this, you’re better than concrete high buildings built for mass tourism πŸ˜‰

The landscape between Carrapateira and Sagres is very diverse: cliffs, green pine plantations, desert sand dunes, amazing beaches. You have it all!

I (Pierre) ended up camping in the car, living my (micro) van life in Portugal for a week. I ended up enjoying amazing sunsets, nightscapes, and sunrises. The perfect time for photography πŸ™‚
