Discover the appeal of the Algarve
There are countless reasons to visit the Algarve – whether you’re seeking a great family getaway or a romantic escape. If there’s one standout feature that makes your holidays to the Algarve worthwhile, its the beaches – stunning sweeps of coastline begging to be explored and home to hidden coves that lend perfectly for families. Away from the beaches, there’s enough to keep you occupied in the resorts too. Albufeira offers a multitude of experiences, with charming cobbled streets making way for colourful market stalls and open-air bars perfect for lingering with a cocktail. If you’d rather embrace a little activity on your Algarve holidays, you’re in luck. Lagos boasts many beaches ideal for surfing as well as some particularly gorgeous views. Golf fans will also find the opportunity to improve their handicap on one of the Algarve’s championship golf courses. Whatever you’re searching for in a holiday, you can guarantee the Algarve will fulfil your fantasies.
