The Algarve is a standout tourist destination.

A highlight is Falésia, easily one of the continent’s best beaches, where dazzling gold sands stretch alongside crystal hypnotically azure Atlantic waters. Play games with your loved ones in the sands, lay in the brilliant sunlight, relax on the shoreline with a refreshing cocktail, or try water sports such as snorkelling in the Atlantic – there’s so much to do on Falésia. The town itself is just as exciting, with chic bars, elegant eateries, fabulous shops, and scenic squares everywhere. Whether you choose to spend your time on ‘the strip,’ where lively night sports stay open until the early hours, in the old town, where you can sip rich coffee in the idyllic central square surrounded by lush plant life, or somewhere else entirely, you’re sure to have a ball in Albufeira!

Zoom down slides at thrilling speeds at sprawling water park Aqualand Algarve not too far away, or feast your eyes on gravity-defying dolphin shows at Zoomarine Algarve.

Gaze at mesmerising rock formations at Praia da Gale beach, see how the locals live at small fishing village Praia de Senhora da Rocha, or trek along walking trails that wind through the dense, pine-lined forest that gave this resort its name.
