The Algarve region

Beaches vary along the region's long coastline. For long beaches consider Falésia, Armação de Pêra, Quarteira or Monte Gordo. Praia da Rocha is a wide beach and popular with the younger crowd, but for watersports head to Meia Praia, Praia do Martinhal, Praia da Luz or Baleeira.
Eating and drinking - there's something for every taste and budget, from picnics at the'end of the world' in Cape St Vincent and beachfront terraces in Alvor to sophisticated fish restaurants in Vilamoura marina and Michelin-starred dining.
Escape - if you fancy getting away from the crowds, head to the eastern Algarve resort of Tavira or the deserted beaches around Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the countryside, Monchique is a perfect choice with mountain walks and a spa at the end of the day.
Excursions - if you have a hire car or fancy taking a trip out for the day, explore the old towns of Faro, Tavira Castro Marim and Monchique. You might even consider a longer trip (maybe with an overnight stay) to the country's capital of Lisbon.
Golf - the Algarve is renowned for its golf, with around 30 golf courses, some with plenty of water features, others with long greens among pine trees, plus coaching and putting greens,

Forte Sao Joao

The apartment complex has direct access to the beach by a private road..You can take a walk to the famous Fishermans' Beach in the heart of the old town of Albufeira and takes 15 minutes to walk.
The apartment complex is only 5 minutes away from the night-life of Albufeira area called the strip,where there is entertainment for all ages and plenty of excellent restaurants bars and cafes.
'There is a tourist train' that runs between the 'strip' and Albufeira 'old town' and the excellent local "Giro" minibus network. If you want to visit one of the water parks such as Aqualand or the Algarve's most popular theme park Zoomarine, there are several agencies in Albufeira offering very reasonable prices for transportation and tickets and with pick-up points near the main hotels it's both convenient and cheaper than hiring a car.
