The Algarve enjoys a mild climate most of the year. The gentle sea breeze stops it getting too humid in summer and in winter it's mild and sunny most of the time. There are many days in winter when it is warm enough to play golf or partake in other sports with just t-shirt and shorts on. A short journey inland from Alvor brings you to a more traditional Algarve with historic Silves and the Sierra beyond with the its delightful Monchique - an excellent retreat in the heat of high summer! Alvor is an all year round destination for golf enthusiasts. Alvor offers a choice of beaches and a harbour and estuary with a protected wildlife area, boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin spotting. Livelier night life is available at Praia da Rocha for the more energetic and young at heart. For the younger members of the family there are many attractions including Zoo Marine, Aqualand, Slide and Splash etc. There is also some great shopping in nearby Portimão namely Aqua shopping centre. The landscape is amazingly diverse from the west coast (towering cliffs and huge ocean breakers - surfer's paradise!) through the central Algarve with gentler beaches and estuaries with marinas – Lagos, Praia da Rocha, Albufeira and Vila Moura.
