Quarteira, Algarve – Portugal

Steve is feeling slightly better although he is starving – he has only eaten a couple of plates of ice cream in the past three days.

We decided to venture to Quarteira which is the next settlement along from Vale do Lobo. It has a really long beach promenade which we strolled along.

The area of Quarteira dates back to Roman times where it’s charter was granted back in 1297. It has evolved from a simple fishing village into one of the major tourist centres in the Algarve.

The beach was lovely & there were lots of little eating places along the promenade. Lots of pizza & pasta restaurants. There are also a lot of seafood dishes on the menus given they form a lot of the traditional Portuguese dishes. Sardines are a traditional Portuguese dish.

We stopped off & ordered a frango (chicken) pizza which Steve managed to eat bar the crust. Hopefully the start of his recovery.

They had espresso coffee on the menu & soy milk so I ordered a soy latte. Not bad.

Nice to be out & about again. Might pop down to the beach for the rest of the afternoon now : )








This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
