Portugal: A Retreat, A Reveal


For such a small country, Portugal has a wealth of beautiful beaches.
Much of the country is rugged coastline, waterlogged and accessible only by small boat, if at all. Low tide, however, each day does its reveal. When the tide retreats you can walk on miles of white sand that spends most of its time under water. You are walking on what is normally part of the sea, under several feet of water.
This beautiful stretch of sand in Lagos is such a place, which I recently explored with a Portuguese friend. It is safe to say most tourists don’t know about this place. How would they? It takes a bit of trekking across rural trails to get here. And around bends, there are caverns and caves carved by wind, sea and time.
These coastal walks are so invigorating and life-affirming.
