Out of the Algarve’s 30 kilometres of sun-kissed coastline, Albufeira contains some of the most beautiful stretches of sand.
White houses glimmer on the town hillside as residents and visitors alike lay on the glorious beach – voted one of the finest in Europe. Old fortresses hint at a fascinating past, while the ruins of a Roman settlement and century old churches make for a days of fun-filled exploration. An Albufeira holiday is the kind during which you watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand after a day of discovery and well-deserved pampering.
Broken up into three distinct areas, a holiday to Albufeira could see you staying in western, central or eastern Albufeira. Many of the resorts are found around the centre of the town, right beside the long sandy beach, top attractions and lively restaurants. Parts of the Old Town still retain a deep sense of charm, with the quaint cobbled streets and single story houses creating a picturesque image of an older Algarve.
For a little more seclusion, choose one of the neighbouring areas like Olhos de Agua. Here you can still access the town in a matter of minutes, but also have a respite from the activity.
