Unfold your maps! Algarve Geography


If you know the Algarve well, stop reading here.

This is meant for people who’d like to get to know the area a little better. Let’s take a 30 000 foot view of the Algarve and slot everything into place like a giant wooden jigsaw puzzle. No longer will you be confused about how far your mates are from your resort, or how long it will take to cruise over for a surf on the west coast.

So unfold your maps (or click open Google Maps), and take a listen to my airliners view of our wonderful piece of paradise.
