Figueira da Foz – The Rainbow Beach

Walking down Balamory High Street, licking a Neapolitan Ice-cream, with sugared almonds in the pocket of the coat you borrowed from your friend Joseph, holding a shopping bag of ‘party rings’, wouldn’t make you feel more colourful than the beach at Figueira da Foz. Beach huts in stripes that Jean Paul Gaultier would envy and tiled house-fronts from a pallet of rainbow drops makes the town feel so quaint and happy. Ignore the awful high rise casino and hotels from an ugly concrete era and focus on the old little fisherman’s houses with painted biblical scenes, the kaleidoscopic beach bars, the Punch and Judy sun tents and you’ll spend your day believing you’re an ‘extra’ on the set of the latest Sony TV advert.
Be sure to bring your sunglasses!
