Albufeira has two great locations in which to drink away your evenings - New Town which has a mile long strip full of bars and restaurants, or Old Town which has a picturesque square with a large feature tree surrounded by bars and restaurants. Our favourite was definitely Old Town, there is just more going on. Street performers were abundant in both towns though, and New Town did have the added bonus of having a bucking bronco in 'Matts Bar', which Hero and Wolverand had several goes on much to the crowds delight. These things are so much fun, it would be a welcome addition to Clubflat! Going between New Town and Old Town are regular buses which we caught the one night as we didn't fancy the walk back. But this was a bus with a difference. The driver was playing loud clubbing music, it was in effect, a party on the bus! Something you'd never get in the politically correct UK, think of those poor pensioners. After the night in the town had ended, every night was guaranteed to end up at the local Snack Bar next door to our hotel for a few more cheap pints, until it shut at 3am. Then it was back to the hotel room for another drink and to count out all the Tabasco and Piri Piri sauce that had been thieved that night from restaurants.
