Day 7: Amelagos

With an early start, we got out to see Lagos' old town.

We grabbed some delicious patio breakfast while soaking up the morning sun, and wandered along the coast.

After getting a taste of the beaches and caves, we drove out to the nearby lighthouse and after another set of old, steep stairs we were greeted with even more stunning views.

After soaking it up, we headed out to our next Airbnb to check in mid afternoon. We ended up in Alvor, a typical beach/resort town in southern Portugal. Thankfully it's on the smaller side and still kind of off the grid compared to its surroundings and the only tourists were retired British couples.

We had a great apartment 50m from the beach, and were only 300m from the main street in town. We went scavenging for food and actually grabbed some charcuterie things at the supermarket to bring back to our balcony and enjoy the amazing view. Unfortunately, Chubz decided today was not a night for a nice balcony hang out and was inconsolable for hours, so the rest of the day was a write off.
