The Algarve is the perfect relaxing experience!

About Algarve

The alluring coast of the Algarve receives much exposure for its breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches, scalloped bays and sandy islands. But 'sun, surf and sand' is far from the end of the Algarve story; there's no shortage of other attractions – activities, beach bars (and discos), castles (both sand and real), diving, entertainment, fun …

The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal. It is a region blessed with stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and a glorious climate, all of which combine to create the perfect holiday destination.

It is wonderfully varied, appealing to a wide cross-section of tourists; there are pristine beaches for families, water parks for teenagers, buzzing nightlife for young couples and historic towns for cultural tours.

Some of the most enjoyable Algarve holidays come from a touring or multi-destination trip. There are mountains, where people live in harmony with nature and maintain traditions that they love to share. Each of the coastal towns has a very distinct atmosphere and appeal, and there are not long distances separating them. Popular routes combine the calmer and relaxed eastern Algarve (Tavira or Vila Real de Santo António) with the buzz of central Algarve (Vilamoura or Albufeira) then with the history and authenticity of the western Algarve (Lagos, Portimão or Sagres),  and Faro, the gateway to the region, deserves a long stop to discover its beautiful historic centre. 

Algarve is the perfect relaxing experience; a region known for its slow cities movement philosophy. A relaxed pace of life and exquisite gastronomy, a veritable treat for anyone who decides to visit.
