The Algarve region
Portugal is situated in the far western corner of Europe and has a strikingly long beautiful coastline. The Algarve’s extensive coastline is blessed with a wealth of long sandy beaches and small sheltered coves .The Algarve benefits from the best climate in Europe, with year round blue skies, around 3000 hours of sunshine a year and usually only a short period of rainfall between November and March. The climate of the Algarve is milder than elsewhere in the country not only because of its southerly position and proximity to Africa, but because of a protective chain of hills along its northern boundary and the influences of the sea. Temperatures in the Algarve generally range from 15 degrees to around 31, but never dip below freezing in the winter.
This combination of climate and coastline means that the Algarve is tailor-made for tourism. The sunshine and the beaches are the biggest draw, but in recent years the building of a host of superb golf courses along with an increased interest in rural holidays has developed tourism into an all-year-round business.
Thanks to an ever-growing tourist industry, Albufeira has become one of the most desired holiday destinations in Europe.Here there is a mixture of the historic and traditional flavour of the Algarve with cobbled streets and picturesque leafy town squares.With its superb variety of restaurants, bars and shops, the Old Town is a very safe family orientated area.
Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and has some of the Algarve's finest beaches. The best known is probably Galé, a vast expanse of golden sand with restaurants and water sports, including jet-skiing and parasailing. Galé can get busy in the summer months, but if you turn down any of the tracks along the coast road you are likely to find a secluded beach or bay. To the west of Vale de Parra is where you will find Quinta da Saudade , a mature estate of privately owned villas with a restaurant and bar. It is only five minutes from the beaches and just above Salgados Golf Club.
Further west is Armacao de Pera; a typical Portuguese fishing town. Part of Armacao de Pera beach remains known as 'Fisherman's beach'. Here you can see brightly coloured boats sitting on the sand with local fishermen tending their nets. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the town with most serving fabulous locally caught fish and of course Chicken Piri Piri! Armacao de Pera can be quite lively in the evenings with bars, shops and restaurants along the promenade. On summer evenings the promenade also hosts many craft stalls where you can shop for souvenirs whilst enjoying the warm Algarvian sea breeze.
