Everywhere in the world has its very own special features, the things about it that makes it different than anywhere else. Some places have famous sites and castles, others historical landmarks, while the Algarve has golf, beaches and the EN — a road known for its danger levels, orange sellers and prostitutes. I did a quick Google search for sex and oranges and apart from one blog and a few dubious results I could not find anywhere else in the world where these two commodities came together apart from in the Algarve in Portugal. And the sex and oranges situation really does sum up the Algarve, a place where a brand new Bentley will overtake a horse and cart, where a Premiership footballer will be sat at the bar with a taxi driver and where a bus load of pensioners will happily enjoy an ice cream while sharing a seaside humour joke with a hen party of twenty somethings after a few too many shots of Sambuca.

Sex tourism is experiencing something of a boom in the Algarve in these recessionary days, if the situation in some parts of the region is anything to go by. In the history of tourism, many ancient cities, frequented by travellers for religious or business reasons, invariably included a neighbourhood for prostitutes. In Portugal, prostitution among adults is not considered illegal. However, the promotion of prostitution or the collection of profits from the activity by others is the crime of pimping and is punishable by imprisonment. In many sections of the road that links the Algarve from west to east, it is possible to find women selling their bodies for money.

Stayed at this hotel in June with my family and what an experience. Staff simply not interested in giving you any service, but the worst was still to come. The Hotel was full of golfers that would arrive in mini buses in the late afternoon after their golf and sit around the ground floor bars and get smashed and loud before going up to their rooms. Surprise surprise after taking the family for dinner in the marina, just across de road, when we come back to the hotel, we found ourselves going through a night life ambience that we did not expect.
With more than days of sunshine per year, and miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches, the Algarve is the perfect location for getting an all-over tan. Although the Algarve only has a handful of official nude beaches, naturism is a common feature on many of the beaches here. Topless sunbathing even more so. Portugal has fairly relaxed rules when it comes to nudism, and the police are unlikely to interfere unless somebody complained.
