One of our favourites. The tapas are excellent, and it is a place to sit outside on a windy day as it is well protected from the wind.

Great, healthy, food. They have good vegan food, but they are more focused on "organic", as they also do prawns, bacon etc. But it is all good. It is a wonderful place to sit - quiet and in the shadow. And there is a pool if the kids want a swim. Highly recommended!!

A big dam with some great views. You can do some nice walks around the lake (the whole walk takes 10-12 hours...). Aim for this spot but beware that Google maps does not show the fastest route. Just follow the roads: https://goo.gl/maps/wNbezxCFFh4jADYK9

Small village on top of the hills. A couple of C cooler. If you drive up there, do not forget to stop off at the Monchique resort and spa. (There is a spa there, although i have never been inside). but is a pretty area with big trees and a couple of short walks to the water spring. Worth an hour or so. Monchique town has some good cafes and a nice centre - we like the velochique cafe, but i admit it is not for everyone.

A beautiful beach, a pretty little town, nice for a change... And if you look it up on the internet, you can also find some dinosaur footprints (walk to the rocks at the bottom of the wooden stairs on the far right of the beach. Climb the big rock at the bottom of the stairs... but please be careful!)
