We arrived at our destination, the ‘Pousada’, Sagres in good time, which allowed for a relaxing hour or so at the pool, which after 12 days of cycling, some relaxation is now needed! The Pousada is in a great location with good views over the bay, albeit the hotel is in need of modernisation as it is tired in parts – that said, it has charm and character and the service from the staff was excellent. And there us a great lock up to store your bikes (with separate lock up for your surfboard!)
We ventured out for a drink into Sagres before our evening meal at ‘Babugem‘. This fish restaurant is probably the best we’ve eaten at – the food was excellent as was the service. We were so glad we picked here to eat. Of particular note was the pickled veg which came with the couvert (this is amazing); with the best tasing red snapper (note: we had one each which also came with fries and salad – we could have shared one the portions were so big). With wine as well this meal was not expensive for what we had. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend. Another highlight for us.
Breakfast at the Pousada, before we left to do our last day’s cycle was really good quality and plentiful.
