Welcome to the Algarve

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, it's scarcely surprising that the Algarve is one of Europe's most popular resort areas, with long and sandy beaches, secluded coves and majestic bays overlooking the Atlantic. Inland, there are delightful traditional towns and villages untouched by tourism (visit Carmo and Albufiera old town) within a green and fertile landscape and for visitors, facilities on the Algarve are truly excellent, with watersports, tennis and horse-riding all widely available.

However, the jewel in the Algarve's sporting charm must be its many championship golf courses, especially around Quinto do Lago where the courses are considered by many golfing aficionados to be amongst the best in the world. With such close proximity to the ocean, the local cuisine inevitably involves the most delicious seafood, with excellent local wines as well, and there's plenty of nightlife too, especially at Praia da Rocha and in Albufeira's Areias de Sao Joao. For children, there's plenty to see and do, with lots of fun to be had on the Algarve's many sandy beaches, with waterparks, minigolf course, theme parks and family resorts offering a range of activities that everyone can enjoy.
