Cacela Velha

Cacela Velha is a truly picturesque and authentic Portuguese village situated towards the eastern end of the Algarve in Portugal.

Pego do Inferno

Pego do Inferno (Pool of Hell) is in the parish of Santo Estevao, a few kilometres from Tavira in the Algarve, Portugal.

Locally Pego do Inferno is known as 'The Secret Waterfall' due to it's discreet location.

Praia do Zavial

Situated to the west of the Algarve in Portugal, Praia do Zavial is a fantastic beach that consists of fine golden sand which is backed up by rocks that have fallen from the eroding cliffs that surround the beach.

Praia da Rocha

Located in the central region of the Algarve in Portugal is the popular tourist resort of Praia da Rocha.

Praia da Salema

Praia da Salema is a long beach with the village of Salema directly behind it. Although Salema is somewhat larger than it used to be, it is still a typical Portuguese fishing village and perhaps one of the only truly unspoilt fishing villages on the Algarve. With its narrow cobbled streets that wind past fishermans cottages and the brightly coloured fishing boats lining the long stretch of fine golden sand, Salema is a far cry from the more tourist orientated resorts on the Algarve. Each morning the local fishermen can be seen launching their boats as they set off onto the Atlantic Ocean for the days fishing.

Praia da Senhora da Rocha

Situated near Porches in the municipality of Lagoa on the Algarve in Portugal is the delightful beach of Praia da Senhora da Rocha, or Praia da Nossa Senhora da Rocha which translates into 'Beach of Our Lady of the Rock'.
