My second holiday this summer consisted of a little break to the Algarve. We came here last year and loved Alvor so decided to go back over Luke’s birthday week. We also travelled to Tavira, another cute town the other side of Faro for a few days.
Tavira was hosting a Mediterranean Diet festival over the few days we were there which was full of street food and craft stalls and it was really exciting. I’d definitely recommend to check whether there’s any festivals or events happening over the time you plan to go to Portugal as there definitely wouldn’t have been as much to do if this wasn’t here. It made it even more exciting. Obviously there’s a million amazing cake shops, ice cream and restaurants to fill your boots with too. Plus, the beach Ihle de Tavira is a short ferry trip away and costs only €1.90 return.
