Back to Sagres, and more Portugal adventures for us! We brought my parents here – to the end of the Earth – on a cold and windy day, so it was a little dicey being a couple hundred feet straight up from the ocean!
Most people come to Sagres in order to enjoy the beaches and catch some waves. As it is the very bottom corner of Portugal, it’s well-known for this type of activity. Being as cold as it was, though, we didn’t see many folks around.
Regardless of the weather, rocky coastlines and beaches are always a sight to behold, so we wandered around for a while, checking out the views.
There’s also an old fort here, so we had a walk around behind its walls and imagined what it must have been like to live at and man hundreds of years ago.
There were also several local fishermen out here, dangling their lines all the way down to the ocean below. They probably think nothing of it, but it gave my nerves a run for their money.
Nope nope nope nope!
Ang likes to play games though!
My parents are notably not into that, and happy to stay away from the edge like the wise people they are.
After our nice walk around for a couple hours, we headed to the local A Sagres restaurant, a real treat to check out when you’re in the area. They feature a lot of different items, but are most well-known for their seafood rice and fresh fish.
Clearly, we ate well. They weren’t done yet, though, as they served us up some traditional shots to end that massive meal, settle our stomachs a bit, and celebrate the goodness.
And that was that! Barely being able to get up from our seats after that fantastic meal, we slowly made our way back to Lagos to rest up after another great day in Portugal. Saúde!

A very special and very big thanks to all the fine folks in Sagres and the Algarve, and to my folks for coming to visit!
