August 2018 – Relax!

The August 2018 issue of Enjoy the Algarve, ‘Relax’, is out now. Read it here and please feel free to share with all your friends.

In it: we explore the Algarvian countryside by Segway, try out carriage driving, learn about Portuguese poetry & taste the bola de Berlim. Bola-seller José Lopes, aka Zéíí, explains why these hot donut-like pastries are the Algarve’s most popular beach snack in the middle of summer.

Our columnist Arthur van Amerongen visits Alcoutim: “Its yearly smuggler festival sounds more exciting than it is. I associate smuggling with balloons filled with Colombian marching powder, but in Alcoutim, it was eggs, butter and coffee that used to be smuggled across the river.” Expat Jeroen van den Bos explains why he felt at home in Portugal the moment he stepped off the plane, and photographer Craig Rogers talks about wildlife photography.

Plus: three things to try this month, five ways to relax in the south of Portugal, seven things to do in the area of Lagoa, and three places to cool down in the Algarvian countryside.


Happy reading

the Enjoy the Algarve team
