Albufeira is the number one choice for beach breaks on the Algarve. It has a unique coastline of gorgeous golden sands backed by cliffs and caves. In its centre, there’s a mix of the authentic and the exciting. You’ll find both beautiful churches and lively bars in the Old Town.
For a fun day out, head to Zoomarine on the outskirts of Albufeira. It has dolphins and sea lion shows, with an on-site waterpark and funfair too. Aquashow in Quarteira features waterslides and rollercoasters, while the Family Golf Park offers mini-golf with a Roman theme in Vilamoura. Slide and Splash is another top choice for speedy slides and more.
Alvor is one of the most scenic resorts on the Algarve. Enjoy a stroll along its boardwalk, which passes over sand dunes, ancient salt pans and sprawling marshlands. Explore the Old Town by night to take your taste buds on a journey too. In Faro itself, expect old-world cobbles mixing whitewashed churches and cool boutiques with marina-side sardines and local wines.
