If you read this space, you must have already guessed that my best of April is Macaneta. We have been there over and over again, and two weeks ago we returned to that beach for one night stay.
We couldn’t enjoy the experience completely, the sea was too strong to swim as we like and the lodge wasn’t up to our taste. Anyway, a toast to the coming season is always a moment to remember.
With the situation in Costa do Sol getting worse and worse every summer due to the crowds, Macaneta appears as a second best option. We tried to go there for several occasions in the last couple of months but we had to give up owing to the line of cars waiting for the ferryboat.
If someone really intends to do something in order to transform Macaneta in a valid destination, it has to start doing it right away. Here are a couple of suggestions: 1) Improving Marracuene aspect by giving a purpose to that village; 2) A bridge or another ferry would be handy; 3) Above all, the actual situation of the dirty road has to change. 4) Capture a little of investment to the place, because local entrepreneurship offer very little to attract tourism.
