When i was last in Albufeira 2 years ago he was still talking about having another bar again so great to hear they are opening a bar. It was great when he got Pasadena's - used to go there every day.

 it is on the main drag through Olhos. I think it is/was called Nelsons. Heading from Albuferia direction the place is on your left about 200/300 metres past Intermarche.
They are hoping to be open in 3 or 4 days time......That is Portuguese timing so......Wink.....will let you know.


Thanks Tonisdad

Will be over in May so we'll give him a shout.

That is news indeed. I didn’t know Nelson’s was closing. We always enjoyed it there as the food was decent, plentiful, and Nelson and his staff were always lovely and friendly. Anyone know if they have moved elsewhere in Olhos?
From the comments on here, at least it sounds like the place has passed into good hands, so will definitely give it a go.
The restaurant is on the main road on the left, just before you turn right to go to the beach. It is next door to Tavertinos.

Places we have liked and would recommend: 
As already been mentioned, Falesia beach - stunning cliffs lovely stretch of beach.  

Carrapateira, Bordeira - beautiful and sandy beaches. 

Lagos. Stunning rocks.

Some history in Lagos too. 

Yes, Alte -  as someone has said- is worth a visit, a lovely little place.

Open to any suggestions really on things that can be done with a car that are worth doing once maybe - we will probably stay for 3/4 nights.

Hello James long time since you have popped up.
First of all congratulations to West Ham for managing to get £6.5 million off us for that Ashley Fletcher...you lot must be laughing your heads off Clap.
If I was you James I would stay in Madrid in August and enjoy it there. Albuferia is completely different in August to the time of year you are used to.
The roads are bedlam people seeing who can make the most dangerous moves especially on roundabouts.
You can`t get sat in bars for Portuguese/Spanish sat there all day or night nursing a bottle of water or cup of coffee...or nothing.
Take into account your cost of getting to Madrid and back petrol/tolls. Extortionate hotel prices and you would most likely be no worse off having a quick jaunt over from UK in September/October when it has eased off a bit and enjoying your August in Madrid.


Can't argue with that. Add the left turn lights half way up the hill to the dolphin roundabout, where idiots who have noticed the turn too late and just stop in the middle lane when the straight on light is already green...

James I think we loaned Fletcher to Sunderland in the hope he would help get them relegated LOL.
Maybe you might pick something up last minute in Albuferia or local.
We still bump into Nico who used to have the bar you drank in. He is working at Tres Coronas...Three Crowns...down the Old Town.

I still lurk around here but i guess my lack of visits to Albufeira recently means i have less to contribute here. 
Yes i am utterly amazed we got that money for Fletcher, i had completely forgotten about him and have just seen he's gone Sunderland on loan.

My girlfriends parents live in Madrid which is the reason i will be there in the Summer - i am there for 16 days. We like to use it as an opportunity to go to the beach for a few days - last year we visited Valencia - any beach we drive to is a minimum 4 hours.

Perhaps we could look into going somewhere else entirely or I am not sure if its worth staying somewhere close but perhaps we could go to Albufeira for the day - i mainly just wanted to visit to come see a few people i have made friends with there.

All my holiday days are fully used this year otherwise i would look to fly out of season (also my girlfriend works in a school so we can only do school holidays).
