Photo Essay: Colorful Algarve, Portugal

We’ve visited Portugal for the first time last year. I had the feeling we’d love it because how could we not love a country that has such a long ocean coastline? 😀 It turned out to be true – only the ocean coast was even more stunning than what we expected.

Praia do Carvalho, Algarve, Portugal

We drove along the Western coastline and then spent almost a week in Algarve. This southernmost region of Portugal was the highlight of our trip! Not only we found some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet (really, just take a look), but we were amazed by all the colors of this region.

Golden sand and emerald green bays.
