Portugal’s Algarve occupies a beautiful position in the South of Europe, and boasts some of the finest beaches in the world. Some have won prestigious awards over recent years. However, beach life is far from all the region has to offer. The Algarve’s beach resorts are backed by scenic hills and mountains, the highest being Foia at an elevation of around 3000 feet.
The Algarve can provide whatever kind of holiday you desire. The entire region is extremely family-friendly and amenities for children are easy to find. Sports fans will find internationally renowned golf courses, tennis facilities, and water-based activities from kite surfing to fishing.
Fish forms a large part of the local cuisine, which is generally simple but of a consistently high quality. However, those seeking more advanced gastronomic experiences will find Michelin-starred restaurants and gourmet delis. Self-catering can prove a highly rewarding experience in the Algarve, with dozens of local markets selling fresh ingredients.
The Algarve is an enjoyable destination whatever the weather, but the region is blessed with that too. Across the year, the Algarve basks in an average of twelve hours of sunshine each day. Whether you choose a rural retreat or party week in a frenetic resort, the Algarve is an area that you will want to return to again and again.
