Hi TE friends
This is the harbour of this beautiful location in the south of Portugal
I enjoyed there the traditional food, a tasty fish dish
I wish you a nice weekend !
Alvor is now a very popular holiday location the enclosed narrow streets have kept development to a minimum. Many of these streets now boast bars with live music and different types of restaurants but leading off from these there are still memories of the older fishing village. In the area are a number of holiday resorts from which the tourists enjoy visiting the town and its attractions.
The village is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. There is a choice of a long open sandy beach or a number of small coves tucked under the cliffs.
If you like having kilometres of sand all to yourself and the chance to spread your towel just where you want, then we guarantee that you’ll fall in love with the beach of Alvor.
For nightlife lovers, the lively atmospheres of Alvor and Praia da Rocha in Portimão will be ideal for you.

Ola Aires y Feliz anniversario! I like the high POV here and the grey tones of the smooth water. The lines created by the pontoon also add interest. TFS and I wish you a good Saturday, Lisa

Beau point de vue sur ce beau petit port. Les voiliers semblent dormir sur ce plan d'eau calme et confortable. La gestion de la lumière est parfaite.

Hi dear Aires,
Happy Birthday to you, nice anniversary :). May all your dreams come true.
Great photo - nice composition, boats and palm and even the cars do not disturb the view. Great bay - nice place for holidays. I am not nightlife lover bur I would stay here for a while.
Have a nice Sunday

Linda composição incluindo os carros no primeiro plano, alinhados com as mini-palmeiras (que parecem abacaxis gigantes ;-) e os barquinhos em profusão lá na frente. As diagonais ordenam a imagem muito bem e acentuam os planos sucessivos.
Parabéns! Também pelo teu aniversário (pelo que li nas outras críticas... como é que eles sabem? ;-)
