More Of Portugal's Atlantic Coast And Beaches

After Sagres we drove further north to the beaches at Praia do Amado and spent the night there in a sort of camping aire, mostly surfers. The coastal scenery is dramatic, even on a relatively calm day.

Surfer traveling homes


Beach Zen

Why gardeners don't like snails

Over the hill is another vast beach and a plain of dunes; and
the non-surfer camping aire...near Carrapateira

Storm waves high enough to destroy the board walk here?

Maybe yes

Looking more or less north; dense sea haze

Miles of dunes

Where we might instead have camped but didn't

Next day, en route to Evora and the magalithic center(s) there,
we put in at a place called Azenha do Mar

Nice scenery but mostly housing for the vast farms inland
