It’s no secret that the Algarve is blessed with a wealth of assets which justify its position as one of the most popular stretches of coastline in the world. With a vast network of Blue-flagged secluded white-sanded beaches, where craggy coves meet tranquil waters, the Algarve is both family-friendly and highly accessible. Sao Rafael is particularly notable for its stunning beach and breathtaking rock formations.
The leading Algarve resort of Albufeira offers welcome variety, with a strip of popular bars and nightclubs for party people and more laid back al fresco dining and quaint cobbled squares for those who prefer a less energetic pace of life. Diving, dolphin-watching and boat trips can also be enjoyed from the beautiful shores of Albufeira. In addition, the sleepy resort of Olhos d’Agua provides a relaxed slice of Portuguese lifestyle where you can explore the restaurant-filled alleyways and sample delicious fresh local cuisine.
