A few days in Faro: Sunset in Praia

So one thing we didn't realise about our "Beach holiday" was that there was no local beach. Oh. When we arrived we took a ten minute bus from the airport to our Air BnB which was next to the harbour. We ditched our bags, had a cold shower & headed out into the heatwave again ready to slip  our toes into the silky soft sand. 

Except there was none. We followed the harbour/sea line & nothing, sigh. We did however find some booths along the harbours edge offering boat trips to the nearest beaches but unfortunately were all closed as it was late. We headed to a nearby bar & was told that Faro's Beach was Praia de Faro & we had to get on the same bus back to the airport & took about twenty minutes. 

That wasn't going to stop us so we headed over to the station & headed on our way. It was pretty late & the beach was very much empty & very windy! We wandered in & out of the flotsam, trying to push each other into the waves being childish as ever. We sat talking on the sand & before we knew it the skies were bruised purples & pinks. The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. 

Have you ever been to Praia de Faro? Have you ever seen a sunset this beautiful?
