The Algarve region

The Algarve is one of the sunniest places in Europe. The summers can be hot, but there is usually a refreshing breeze by the coast. Spring and Autumn are ideal times for outdoor pursuits, such as golfing, biking, walking. The winters are mild and very often sunny, but do expect a few rainy days any time between October and March.

The Atlantic coastline offers a spectacular variation of scenery from dramatic limestone cliff formations surrounding tiny coves, to long, flat, sandy beaches ideal and safe for family holidays.

Go inland, and the mountains of Monchique provide a totally different viewpoint (and on some days a totally different climate) to the coastal areas. The terrain here makes it ideal for all types of activities, from off–road biking, hiking and quad biking to walking and simply enjoying the spectacular scenery.

The western facing side of the Algarve is certainly worth a visit. The beaches are beautiful and clean and the scenery fantastic – but be prepared for more wind and colder water! A favourite spot for windsurfers.

Go east of Faro and you will find the Ria Formosa, a protected part of the coast cut off from the sea by sand–spits, forming large areas of marshlands and lagoons teeming with wildlife.

Further east beyond Tavira the coast runs off towards Spain with mile after mile of Golden flat sand.

Old Town Esplanade

The Albufeira area

The Old Town of Albufeira with its cobbled streets offers a never ending choice of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Some bars have live music in the evenings and the Town Square has some interesting and very good street performers.

The town beach is only a few minutes walk and has various water sports on offer, sunbeds for hire and a line of beach front cafes. At low tide you can walk to Fisherman's beach and beyond.

If you want to go to The “Strip” area of Albufeira then this is an easy ride by bus or by the town's “Shuttle Road Train”. Here you can party until the early hours of the morning in the bars and nightclubs that line the street. In addition, again there is a huge choice of restaurants and a variety of shops.

If you fancy something a bit quieter then the new Marina is within walking distance (about 15 minutes). This is still evolving but has new bars and restaurants, a few shops and is a place to pick up many waterborne trips. Alternatively, catch the bus or take a taxi to some of the beautiful beaches just a few kilometres either side of the town.

A wide range of activities are available within the area. Golfing, tennis and horse riding are all within a 10 minute drive. Other organised activities such as fishing trips, scuba diving, sailing, quad biking, safari trips can all be organised from Albufeira. For the children Zoomarine and other Water Parks are within an easy drive or transport is provided by the parks if booked in advance.
