In the central Algarve, everyone’s favorite spot for authentic Portuguese cuisine in an ultra-cool environment is Paixa (at Vale do Lobo). For Summer 2013, the team behind Paixa turns up the “hip factor” with an additional temporary location for sunset cocktails and tasty petiscos, all with awesome views of the ocean. Meet us at Waves by Paixa on Praia Ancão.
Waves is a contemporary space, literally on the beach, and just a few steps to the water’s edge. The circular structure is ultra modern made of steel, painted silver wood and glass. The floor is clear Plexiglas, exposing the sand below. At night, lighting under the floor illuminates the sand creating a surreal floating effect.
The ground floor features a small bar for sharing intimate drinks. The rest of the space is open plan with seating “inside” and outside.” However with Summer, the floor to ceiling doors are wide open, exposing the entire room to the cool ocean breezes.
Climb the circular staircase to the rooftop lounge. Here, smooth electronic music mixes with the sounds of the sea. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views down the coast to the east and to the west. It is Algarve lifestyle at its best.
After sunset, head back down stairs for a meal consisting of a selection of petiscos (Portuguese tapas). Popular dishes from Paixa are available at Waves. Manchego cheese with olive oil, rolled black pork ham and marinated broad bean salad, go well with octopus salad with peppers, salmon mouse and Portuguese polenta with clams and prawns. There’s something for everyone on this menu.
