Algarve: the edge of the world

Portugal’s southermost region is well known for its sandy beaches and lively nightlife, but the Algarve also entices visitors because of its diversity. Here, golden cliffs (like picture above) drop off into the ocean’s waves below and Moorish ruins remain where entire communities once lived. As a major tourist destination, former fishing villages have been turned into summer resorts, but if you look close enough, its history still lingers amidst high rise apartments and modern developments. However, this beautiful region still has plenty of treasures worth discovering and plenty of activities to hold any traveler’s wanderlust interest.
