Albufeira is a popular holiday resort in the Algarve. It has become famous for many reasons, but most notably for "the Strip". Albufeira Strip is a long road running through both Montechoro and Areias de São João; and hence there is the 'north strip' in Montechoro and the 'south strip' in Areias de São João.
These two parts are quite different. The south end is simply bustling with bars, restaurants, shops and tattoo parlours tightly packed in next to each other. The 'north strip' is somewhat calmer, with some designer clothes and sunglasses shops, wine shops, more spacing between businesses and garden areas towards the far end.
Albufeira has also been my summer vacation destination in the last seven years. And this year I decided to grab every opportunity to go out in the street (the Strip or any other) and take some pictures! Now, three months later, here they are. I called this the Albufeira Street Series… After all, it is what it is!
