While we were in Portugal last summer, we mostly sat on the beach with our friends, looking at the ocean, and soaking up the sun. One day though we hopped into our rental cars and drove a half hour to the coastal town of Faro. Once we got there, we walked up and down the boardwalk and saw what tour options there were for tourists. After reviewing our options, we decided to take a boat tour of the caves in the surrounding area! Our friend Niamh’s cousins were coincidentally in Portugal at the same time we were, so we were able to fill the entire boat with just our group. As we headed out of the Marina the blue skies and jutting cliffs were just what we were hoping to see. The pictures just don’t quite do this natural phenomena justice.
