The Algarve

In a week i'll be off on holiday to Cabanas de Tavira in the Algarve, Portugal. I was wondering if any of you have been there and can suggest things to look and look out for while I am over there, kit for my camera bag and so on?

Currently I have,
my camera
18-50 kit lens
50-200mm zoom
CPL Filters for both
Tripod
Remote
2 32gig SD Cards
External HDD (to download photos to when i fill up)
spare body & lens caps

Got extra batteries on order and I am praying they arrive in time. Got a lens cloth, will get wipes before i go from the local pound shop. Just put an order in for an air blower and lens pen.

I have been there in April. There is a great place for pizza and for ice-cream!
I don't know what your main interests are. I am a wildlife photographer. You can read my report here:

If you have questions, please ask.
