Algarve

Albufeira, Alvor, Carvoeiro, Quarteira, Vilamoura

Imagine gorgeous beaches, quiet sandy coves, quaint, cobbled villages and glorious hospitality, and you've summed up Portugal's prime holiday destination – the Algarve.

Algarve

Albufeira

One of the Algarve's many jewels, Albufeira is a resort of contrasts.  On one hand, there is the traditionally Portuguese Old Town, where tourists and locals mix in the bars and restaurants which fill the winding streets around Fisherman's Beach.  On the other, there is the legendary nightlife provided by the lively bars and clubs on Albufeira's famous 'strip'. Take your pick!

Alvor

Alvor is one of those little seaside resort towns for which the Algarve is famous. It boasts a long golden beach, flanked by a boardwalk, which leads to the small picturesque harbour and off that there's a maze of winding streets and lanes with a good selection of restaurants, cafés, bars and tourist shops to choose from.

Carvoeiro

Carvoeiro is a quaint Algarve seaside village with a number of small sandy coves - a real hidden gem! The square, with views to the fishing boats and ocean beyond, is a perfect setting for al fresco dining. While retaining much of its original fishing village charm, Carvoeiro also boasts a good selection of bars, restaurants and tourist shops.

Olhos d' Agua

Olhos d'Agua is a small, quiet seaside resort, part of the neighbouring larger resort of Albufeira. A delightful fishing town near the heart of The Algarve.

Portimao

Located on Portugal’s famous Algarve coast, Portimao is a bustling resort with a wide array of bars, cafés and restaurants as well as plenty of shopping opportunities. The colourful marina offers a range of boat trips and the excellent beach of Praia da Rocha is within easy reach. 

Praia Da Rocha

One of the Algarve’s most popular resorts, Praia da Rocha has a superb sandy beach and a wide choice of cafés, bars and entertainment venues.

Quarteira

The laid back and relatively tranquil resort of Quarteira boasts a superb sandy beach and a good sprinkling of shops, bars & restaurants along the seafront promenade. It neighbours the livelier resort of Vilamoura, which can be reached with a pleasant walk along the sea front, or a very short bus or taxi ride.

Vilamoura

Vilamoura is centered round a picturesque marina, lined with a wide and varied selection of shops, cafés, bars & restaurants, which makes it a wonderful spot to settle down over a long lazy lunch. There is also a fine sandy beach, a casino which features regular live shows and for golf enthusiasts, a range of courses to choose from.
