We drove to a car park near Vilamoura Marina to stay for one night and when we arrived we realised the parking was free, we had found our cheapest accommodation so far. We hadn’t realised how close we were so we walked the long way round, past all the hotels and the beach, we fell in love straight away. The marina was huge with so many restaurants and bars to choose from so we stayed for the night. We had never seen so many Irish bars in one place before, but we picked one and played a few card games. After spending the night in the car we got up and walked back down to the marina and fed the fish our left over bread from the day before, we decided that we would spend that night at a nearby campsite so we could finally do some washing!
