The Gosport peninsula has 17 miles (27 km) of waterfront on Portsmouth Harbour and The Solent and is a maritime playground for all. Until the last quarter of the 20th century, Gosport was a major naval town. The pebble beach at Stokes Bay slopes steeply into the sea which is great to see. It offers fine views of the shipping going in and out of Portsmouth and Southampton and the many pleasure craft from the many marinas along The Solent and the Isle of Wight.
Alvor is a small fishing town located in the southern shore of Portugal. It is an ideal place for calm and relaxing getaway, but still with wide variety of restaurants and cafes. Take a pleasant walk in the Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve across the sand dunes or in the beach and enjoy the scenic view of this beautiful nature without crowded tourist masses.
