Praia Formosa tunnel remains closed
Thanks to Mike for letting the blog know that tunnel through the caves linking Doca do Cavacas to Praia Formosa remains closed. However there is no longer any warning of this at the top of the steps leading down from Centromar (pictured), so unless you are heavily into fitness you can save yourself a long walk down and back before you find out! The sign announcing the closure is only at the bottom.
If somebody can let me know when it reopens I will put a note here – the seafront walk along this stretch is very popular, particularly with summer apparently setting in.
The Diario website reports on the weather forecast, which anticipates a sunny start to the week. There will, as usual, be more chance of cloud in the north of the island. The temperatures will vary between 19ºC and 24ºC according to the Portuguese Weather Institute, with little wind and calm seas.
