If you want empty beaches in Algarve, it is possible to find several spots.
Oneof those beaches is in Ilha deserta. To reach this island from Faro just follow the link (http://www.ilha-deserta.com/?lang=uk). Each person will pay 10 euros for a return ticket and each journey will take around 30-40min, but the journey is totally worth it!
You can find only one ecology-restaurant and loads of wasps, however completely tolerable.
And the water is so warm and beautiful, you won’t want to get out of it!
Are you still wondering why I go there every summer?
