The Algarve region
Most people are familiar with the Alagarve as the southern most area of Portugal .The climate is equally well known for its ,close to ,300 days of sunshine per year .The climate is said to be similar to that of California. Even at the height of summer it is cooled by Atlantic breezes, whcih make the heat more pleasant . As well as summer ,Spring and Autumn are beutifully warm ,even up unitl Christmas it can be warm and pleasant.
The East Algarve is the more sheltered side of the Algarve ,so does not get the very strong winds experinced in the west and central Algarve.
Flights are to Faro ,the capital of the Algarve . Faro is a fine old historic city . There is the old walled city with winding streets squares and churches .The more modern area has plenty of good shops , bars and restaurants. Faro shopping , near the aiport is a large shopping complex.
Golf is ,of course is, well catered for around the whole of the Algarve ,with the Estern Algarve having many fine courses.
There is a strong moorish influence in the Algarve from its occupation by the muslim's of North Africa for about 500 years. This is reflected in the architecture ,Olhao for example, and food.
Tavira is a recommendation for a visit as are the many other towns and villages along the cost and inland .
As already mentioned, Fuseta is within easy reach ,by car or train , of Faro and Tavira. Olhao is even closer and is an interesting moorish style working town with a fine promenade. The Spanish border is only 40 minutes drive away and is accessible over a new suspension bridge or by ferry form Vila Real de Santa Antonio.
There is a marine park and also water park near to Faro.
The Palace of Estoi and Roman ruins of Milreu are 25 minutes drive away.
During the year there are many festival days in Fuseta . In fact in summer almost every weekend seems to be a celebration.
