HILLS EVERYWHERE !
Most of the accomodation in Albufeira is situated high above the town itself and so a trip to the beach , shops or bars and back can be hard work in 90 deg temperatures !
One warning for those of you who like their Short drinks. The measures are NOT like home , a single IS really a double!! As my friend Robbo found on numerous trips to the toilet!!
Safety at night
We never experienced any trouble after dark but you should always be alert around the bars and esp[ecailly the beach are at night time.
