Explore the Algarve

There’s plenty to see and do in the Algarve’s many resorts. Nightlife in Lagos and Albufeira lets visitors dance the night away in a stunning location. The livelier resorts, such as Praia des Rocha and Vilamoura, are ideal for groups of friends or young couples who enjoy a good night out, as the conveniently located apartments will have you staying just minutes from all the action.

If you want to escape the crowds, step outside the busier resorts to discover secluded beaches, quiet coves and relaxing cliffside walks. Altura on Portugal’s eastern border is a calming resort, well connected for day trips and cultural excursions. Stay in one of the beachside hotels for your holiday to Algarve and find yourself waking up to gorgeous ocean views each day.

Things to do in the Algarve

If you fancy taking the family away from the beach on your Algarve holiday, the Zoomarine in Albufeira is a water themed adventure park where you can get close to dolphins - an experience kids will never forget. Those looking for adventure can also take a 4x4 tour of the region or, if you’re willing to get a little sweaty, you may want to discover the beautiful landscape at your own pace on a hired mountain bike.

If you’re interested to learn more about Portuguese history you could visit the city of Faro, which has both Roman and Arab ruins, or, take a day trip to Lisbon; Portugal’s capital city, for striking architecture.
