I go to Monte Gordo every year, for the last 20+ years!! It’s the best place for me in the whole Algarve (I’m not rich!!) Not so many Brits around, beettr food, cheaper than the fashionable Albufeira etcc . and an added bonus, really important for me: the sea water is the warmest of the whole country!! Another one: the strip of sand is very extended, km and km of fine, golden sand!
