Albufeira – good and bad

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on February 10, 2019 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

Pictures taken Friday afternoon on a bit of a walk.

First, some views. Looking across the old town and the bay with Vilamoura and Quarteira in the distance.


The stadium floodlights and in the background the Montechoro area with its many tourist hotels.

And the area around Camping Albufeira (the big building in the centre) and Vale Paraiso.

Recent warm and occasionally wet weather has made the grass grow.

But the downside of almost any walk around here is coming across this :

Clearly some people have no conscience or respect for the environment and could not care about what others may think. They are too lazy to go an extra 5 minutes to an authorised municipal dump. Nothing is done to stop this.

Town beach on Saturday lunchtime. There were people sunbathing and paddling in the sea. The weather has been like this, 17 or 18ºC, for some while and is set to last at least another week.

Pictures taken Sunday afternoon 30th December. It was a very nice day, temperature 18ºC, plenty of people enjoying a walk on the beach. There were even some mad people in the waves! The stage is set for tonight’s big NYE outdoor music and fireworks event. Around 80,000 people will be in town tonight.

It is only about 16ºC but a nice enough day for a walk along the beach. The sea was slightly rough. Update – a friend visited São Rafael beach to the west of town also today. Two pictures added at the end.

DSC07040It looks as if work is taking place to level out the sand. Certainly on the other side of the pier, as later images show, the sand is very low.
