#REF! Warnings in Monte Gordo

Crowds

Monte Gordo is one of the most popular family destinations in Algarve, which means that, even with a wide beach, it may become crowded in peak season.

​I don’t bother sharing space with other people, but those who appreciate emptiness should look elsewhere.

​High Tides

The sea is generally very calm, but in high tides it may become wilder.

Not always rough enough to force to suspend swimming – as a matter of fact, for my tastes, high tides provided, this time, the very best days of the vacation – but implying some surprises as wet towels or… “navigating shoes”.

​However, things may be different, and some years ago I saw a girl breaking one arm, so it is important to follow the vigilante’s instructions.

Leiria ​Stroll in the night

There is not much nightlife in Monte Gordo, because it is a family destination.

The main attraction, in the hot nights, is to stroll by the beach, and tasting soft drinks and ice cream in the many esplanades and stalls.
