Vale do Lobo [Loulé] Traditional Cache

This cache has been archived.

Torgut: This was one of my first caches. I wanted to show my favorite beach. Since then, almost every beach in Algarve got its own cache and I think there are too many of this kind. I think it's the third missing container and so I decided it was time for archiving. No "Find" logs will be accepted from now on.

Geocache Description:



Vale do Lobo is a luxurious area near the sea. Gorgeous villas can be found on its narrow and intimate streets, some of them belonging to celebritites like Bonnie Tyler or Madonna.

It's a popular place for tourists, specially those coming from the british islands, who seek the top class hotels and private accomodation available in Vila do Lobo.

The center offers a variety of shops, restaurants and carefully placed esplanades from where the visitor is invited to enjoy a full meal or a simple drink, while watching the blue ocean and the golden sand.

Golf is one of more atractive offers of Villa do Lobo. But this is not the only sport beeing practized here. Every year there is a tenis tournment which brings here legendary names of the Great Slam, like John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl. And if you are a sports fan perhaps you may like to know that one of the finest health clubs of the region is also located in Vale do Lobo, regularly hosting well known football teams and even national teams like the german one.

The cache is located near the beach, but, be aware that I'm not refering to Vale do Lobo main beach. As you can see in the above picture, from there you will be able to enjoy great views, over the ocean, golf court and Quarteira.

During summertime muggle activity may be intense, although cache location offers some privacy. Please be carefull not to call the attention of private security guards who usually patrol Vila do Lobo.
