20th November – 22nd November
Our next stop was Odeceixe, a pretty village perched on the hillside beside the flat, wide valley of the Odeceixe River. As with most of the small villages and towns in this area, at this time of year it is quite sleepy, with only the locals going about their daily business. Praia de Odeceixe, a big sandy beach at the mouth of the Odeceixe River lies about 4km west of the village.
Odeceixe is a great base to head out to explore some of the coastline and beaches in this western region of the Algarve, so we did exactly that. To the south of Odeceixe lies the town of Aljezur, and yet more incredible cliffs and beaches.
Having being bombarded with impressive view after impressive, I thought surely our last couple of nights on the Algarve coast couldn’t live up to the last few days. But sure enough, there was even more..
