I can’t believe that our road trip to the Algarve is almost over again. It was absolutely beautiful to stay here for a couple of days, exploring and discovering the area on this coastline. I have found some beautiful new spots to stay, to eat and to relax.
We had a beautiful Air Bnb accommodation in Amancil. I did not knew this place before but I am really, really happy that we decided to stay there. Amancil is a small town near Loulé. There is everything you need: supermarkets, little cafés, a really good bakery and so on. We can just recommend the place we have stayed. It is a really good place to explore the Algarve.

We did some really nice day trips to cities and beaches. Here my favorites:
Explore Tavira. It is a beautiful city located in the parque natural ria da farmosa. You should definitely go there in the evening. There are plenty of restaurant options. I can highly recommend the restaurant called O Tonel. I had a delicious chickpea curry.
Explore Ihla da Tavira and Praia do Barril. We spent a whole day in the National Park because it is so stunning.
Explore Lagos with its nice cafés and little boutiques. Bora Café was really nice! Afterwards we visited the Cabo de Sao Vicente which is the south east point of europe. Have a sundowner at the Surf Bar on the Tonel Beach.
There are so many beautiful beaches where you can spend the whole day. We really enjoyed the Praia do Dona Ana, Praia da Marinha, Praia do Camillo and Praia do Benagil.
Make sure to have a sundowner and dinner at NAU Beach Club in Portimao. This is the perfect spot to chill. The food is delicious by the way. Try the vegan curry, really we all loved it!
