The Albufeira / Quinta Dos Brejos area
Quinta Dos Brejos is a quiet residential district of Albufeira . The villa adjoins Algarve Golf Academy (currently awaiting new owners). Nearby is the new green area with a skate park, indoor swimming pool, athletic stadium and a couple of bars.
The Old Town of Albuferia with its picture postcard bay, Fisherman's Beach a sandy cove, flanked by limestone cliffs is five minutes drive away. The walk is quite hilly so as an alternative take one of the local buses or a taxi will cost approx 4 euros.
At the heart of the resort, the Main Square is home to many a colourful street artist and live music playing into the night give this area a marvelous atmosphere. Small market stalls occupy the streets around the square and you can easily find the ideal gift to take home with you. Its a bustling but yet traditional side of the resort and should not be missed on a visit to the region.
Is also five minutes drive from us and is known as 'The Strip'.
This long street runs north/south through the resort and contains everything you could possibly want during your stay. It is lined by many bars, restaurants, bureau de exchange points, supermarkets, souvenir shops, boutiques, ice cream parlous, information points, bike & car hire. The Strip culminates at a steep hill that finishes at Praia da Oura or Golden Beach. As the name suggests this is a golden sandy cove, shelving gently into the cool Atlantic ocean. There are sun beds and parasols for hire here and the water sports school will keep the more active occupied. At night 'The Strip' offers a livelier alternative with many music bars with bright lights well into the night.
I new, colourful addition to this area. Take a speed boat and find the dolphins or a leisurely cruise to enjoy the magnificent coastline.
