Southwest Coast, Algarve - PORTUGAL - UNESCO TENTATIVE

The Southwest Coast of Portugal is my favorite region for camping - it's a beautiful and very peaceful natural park (UNESCO natural WHS tentative), perfect to recharge the batteries after a year of hardwork... it's exactly what my good friends Marco, Ni, Alberto and Sandra are doing since the beginning of this month... camping and not doing anything (as they say in the cards but using words I can't translate and write here). Thanks a lot guys - I wish I could be there with you! This postcards took 5 days to arrive!

Owing to its geographical position, its landscape diversity and limited human occupation, the Southwest Coast, an interfacial zone between the land and the sea, has developed its own specific features and a variety of habitats which are responsible for the wealth of its flora and fauna. It is one of the last and most important stretches of wild coastline in the South of Europe, with great extensions remaining almost unaltered by human activities and building, and benefiting from an extremely low demographic density.
