Living Statues - Albufeira

Living Statues

Living Statues Old Town Review

I expect that most of us have seen these Living Statues, but they never cease to amaze me, the way these people can stand so still, and for so long. And, it was very hot too! The one in the picture here, with Mary, seemed just like the one we saw last year in Torremolinos, but who knows?

One thing for sure is that the fascinate the children - until they suddenly move, and so do the kiddies, LOL!! Take a picture, and give them a Euro or whatever. It's always nice.

Directions: In the Old Town Garden (Central area)

Fishermen's Beach, Old Town - Albufeira

Fishermen's Beach, Old Town

The Beach, The Beach... Beaches Review

So why did you chose Albufeira? It has lots to offer, but the beaches are really great! Soft golden sand, and usually plenty of room to set down your towel and relax.

There are areas of the most popular beaches, like Fishermans Beach, where there are sunbeds and beach umbrellas laid out, for hire. I think you'll find that you are not permitted to set up your own beach umbrella within a certain distance of the official ones, so be aware!
