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.

The grass is green – but the flytipping!

Walked over to the cinema, which is about 3 miles / 5km. The countryside is fairly green, the almond trees are flowering but it’s spoiled in places. Here, many people think it is acceptable to dump building rubble and old televisions by the roadside.

A couple of samples, the rest at https://1drv.ms/f/s!Am0w7qp9HCpqg6xngk8fFELGbevmag
This the view looking north-east towards the hills. The noticeable high point is the Rocha da Pena, 494 metres above sea level.
