So for anybody who didn’t read my latest post, back at the start of June, I spent a week in Portugal visiting my grandparents who live out there. During our trip to see them, they surprised us with a little mini trip to one of their favourite spots in Portugal – the beautiful seaside town of Nazaré. Compared to places like the Algarve, Nazaré is much less touristy, and has a really authentic, relaxed vibe. I could’ve easily spent a whole week here.
While we were there, we stayed in the loveliest apartment, visited some gorgeous local spots and made the most of the sun, paddling in the sea, eating the most delicious ice-cream I’ve ever had (not even kidding – still dreaming about it now!), and taking in the picturesque surroundings. I didn’t want to leave – especially knowing that, as this was nearing the end of our week away, we’d soon be back in drizzly Britain.
Here are just a few of the snaps I took while we were there – even just going through these makes me want to book the next available tickets out there!
The view of the town from a little village up on the cliffside, O Sitio (more about that place later). The little white buildings and red rooftops makes me think of the Greek Islands – seriously photo-worthy!
All through the town are these little pops of colour and amazing graffiti on the buildings. I had to stop myself from photographing every street.
Nazaré is a bit of a secret spot for surfers, with the largest wave ever recorded in the world. I am definitely not a surfer, but it was fun watching all of the surfers doing their thing!
All of the little markets are super cute, selling lovely little handmade trinkets, bags, shoes, clothes – you name it! So much restraint was needed on my part to stop myself splurging!
A little fun shot – this is me and Lee dragging my Nan in to paddle and getting soaked in the process!
Sunset walks on the beach. No words needed. BLISS.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my photos – let me know if any of you have been to Nazaré and what you thought!
