Where to go in Portugal: Figueira da Foz

On our way to Alentejo we just had to see it. Figueira da Foz, Europe's widest beach, really does seem endless, especially if the view from your hotel room is directly facing it.

We dined at a random restaurant; it was Sunday and most of the places were closed, the town seemed deserted. The only things we tried were olives, sardine spread with warm bread and prawns sprinkled just with thick salt. Sometimes there's just nothing more you need.

I loved to wake up early in the morning the next day, watch gigantic shadows of the buildings reach the beach, grab a chouriço bread (pão com chouriço) at a random café downstairs and, to the sound of strong waves, take a walk to a tiny lighthouse.

The sandwich was so tasty that we bought more for the journey and, at the end of the day, ate it on the beach in Vila Nova de Milfontes, as if it was the best delicacy in the world. :)

We stayed at Mercure Figueira da Foz.
