Portugal - Leiria
Nazaré
Nazaré is an old fishing village. In the old days, before the new harbour wasbuilt, the fishing boats were pulled on to the beach by oxen. When I was therethe fisherman's wives were still wearing the traditional dress; a black kerchiefand the seven flannel skirts.Along the foreshore you will find shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also anmarket selling fresh fish, fruit and veges. It's in the middle of town andshouldn't be to hard to find. I think it's open most days too.

Portugal - Algrave, Southern Portugal
Albuferia
We stayed in a fanastic little guest house called Pensao Dianamar. This is run by Swedish women and the place is really nice and clean and easy walking to the beach and all the main places of interest. Albuferia is a very pretty little town with a lot of tourists, restaurants, a fab beach, plenty of shops also cheap alcohol shops. This town didnt seem to expensive since it was a tourist town.
