Algarve, the beautiful seaside region in the south of Portugal, has won the prestigious Europe’s Leading Beach Destination 2012 award. It’s definitely not a surprise since the Algarve has been one of my favorite regions in the world for many years. I’m lucky in that I get to travel to the Algarve at least once a month and take advantage of all the great things the region has to offer.

Here are some of my favorite:

Clams in olive oil & garlic, then sprinkled with lemon juice & cilantro. A great summer treat. Specially delicious with a crispy Vinho Verde.

The Algarve has nearly 200 km of sea coast with some of the most beautiful, clean, safe and easily accessible beaches in Europe.
