Photographer's Note

Quarteira -Algarve
Conveniently located to the east of Vilamoura, Quarteira has developed into one of the Algarve's top resorts since the boom of the 1970/1980s. With safe bathing conditions and a long, sandy beach running virtually uninterrupted all the way to Faro, it is mostly popular with holidaymakers during the summer months, as well as golfers during the low season.
What to see. Along with the beach, Quarteira's principle attraction is its lengthy promenade, bordered by rustling palms, bright flowering hibiscus and the white and pink of the oleander. In the evening, this pleasant seaside walkway is filled with an endless stream of families and couples inspecting the restaurant menus, which all feature freshly-caught fish bought directly from the local market.
