Marinha is about a 20 minute car journey from Albufeira, towards Lagoa. We first went there on the way back from Silves, with Carmen and Stace, but the sun was all wrong for the best photos, so we decided to visit there again, on the way to Cape St Vincente. It was well worth the detour, although to reach it from the main road, the N125, you have to do a strange u-turn! You cannot turn right at the traffic lights, but instead pass through them, and immediately turn right, and loop back to the left, to more lights. You then turn left, headed back the way you came, and then right at the first set of lights!
It was about 10.30 am when we got there, with only one or two other cars, and already very hot. Westayed just long enough for some pictures, and returned the way we came, and on towards the Cape.
