Lover’s Day is approaching, so candlelit dinners and dozens of roses are in store for conventional youngsters in love. But for more imaginative and experienced people, a trip is the best solution to keep the flame of love burning as bright as ever. A Romantic Valentine’s Day in Portugal is what we had in mind for today.
Portugal boasts with one of the proudest legacies in Europe. Vastly forgotten today for its role in the great Age of Discoveries, its beautiful lands and its beautiful people still remind you that you are in a very special place every moment you spend there.
And number one on the list of Portuguese tourist attractions is the sunny wonderful shores of the Algarve. The seaside, southern region of Portugal attracts thousands of local, but especially foreign visitors every year basically year-round. Winters are mild, so even though we’re not talking sunbathing and swimming in the ocean in February, the Algarve is also “visitable” in the low season.
One of the most inspiring places to pull out that ring and get down on one knee is the wonderfully romantic Benagil beach in the vicinity of Carvoeiro. The attraction of the beach is a dome-like cave carved naturally from the cliffs, with an aperture that lets the sun stream in and shine over the ocean-bathed golden fine sand of the beach. You can also get a Carvoeiro car rental at an affordable price during this time of the year. Just a thought, I imagine few girls would find bus rides romantic.
And here’s another truly romantic spot for all those wanting to run away from the routine and crowds: the secluded and utterly charming hamlet of Cacela Velha. Don’t be put off by its size: Cacela Velha has history as old as time, reminding you of the Roman and Moorish occupations, but preserving the utter Portuguese essence.
