Shopping in Algarve during your Golf Holidays

It's difficult to beat a decent meander around the shops. The Algarve has an incredible scope of stores, from worldwide brands and enormous shopping centers to little nearby stores stuffed with hand-made items, from gypsy markets to designer outlets.

Traditionally linens, pottery and leather items were the best bargains. That is still obvious today, yet watch out for hand made gems, furniture (it can be shipped!), aromas and gadgets. Also, remember cigarettes and liquor - the prices are very competitive.

Portugal Golf - Fauna: golf courses are safety

Fauna: golf courses are safety

Golf courses represent safety for all animals, whether they are "residents" or just passing through during migratory seasons.
There are golf courses that are authentic "reserves" due to the diversity and quantity of animals that visitors may observe while playing.
In the lakes of the S. Lourenço golf course (Quinta do Lago), next to the Ria Formosa, hundreds of birds can be seen all year round, and during the migration period, thousands of them stop off there, like at an airport... (the observation posts around the course are always very popular).
At Castro Marim Golf the diversity of birds is abundant, but the majority are rabbits and partridges, as on many other courses in the Algarve.
At this time of year, the golf courses with many fig trees (Palmares, Vale do Lobo, Vale da Pinta, Benamor, Quinta da Ria, among others) are a permanent habitat for birds.
Morgado do Reguengo e Álamos (Monchique) is the preferred resort for storks, the dominant species, but there are also frequent encounters with rabbits and partridges. Yesterday afternoon, around the lake bordering Holes 1 and 2 at Álamos, hundreds of storks sought the cool waters.
On all the golf courses, the only species that is not well received, but unfortunately "visits" many, is the wild boar, because of the huge damage it causes.
