Will be arriving for our first visit later this month.
What types of beaches we love:
We love the beaches in the Algarve and in particular long beaches where one can walk by the water's edge back and forth for a long time safely (possibly while leaving one's belongings (nothing of value) on beach chairs. Busy beaches with bars aren't our choice but it'd be nice to have toilets and a place to get cold drinks but can bring our own food, too, if necessary.
What is YOUR favourite beach?
It's not our first visit. We were in Lagos for 3 weeks before and loved it! We don't mind having to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas as we appreciate that the cost of beach cleaning and mainentance is important and these costs must be shared by all users. We will have a car and know not to leave valuables in the car.
Many thanks for your responses! :)
