Peace and Pleasure in Portugal
Nestled on the border with Spain, the beautiful town of Altura is an idyllic paradise set apart by its tranquil and serene atmosphere. Quieter than its rowdier neighbours such as Faro further along the Algarve coast, Altura holidays allow you to experience the region’s original laid-back nature first hand. Overcrowded pubs and nightclubs pumping out music night long are in short supply here so you can enjoy the Algarve as was originally intended. The town is also perfectly positioned to serve as a staging post for exploring the rest of Portugal’s southern coast, or making the short trip into Spain for a day trip to the exotic city of Seville.
Whatever your accommodation needs, holidays to Altura are sure to provide. From all-inclusive luxury of a resort holiday through to self-catering apartments, you are sure to find what you are looking for. There are a wide range of holiday villas, many of which have private swimming pools should you find the traditional resort experience overwhelming. Whether you’re looking to splash the cash on five-star lavishness or make the most of the sun, sea and sand on a budget, holidays in Altura are sure to have something to suit you.
If Altura’s laid back nature sounds a little too quiet to you, then consider one of the bigger resort towns such as Faro or Albufeira, where the nightlife is sure to satisfy. Lisbon, the elegant Portuguese capital, offers all the beautiful weather of an Algarve holiday with the added bonus of the comforts of a modern city.

Your guide to Altura holidays
A quiet, low-key resort in the Algarve, there are plenty of things to do in Altura that make it the ideal place to unwind on holiday. If you’re looking for a spot of rest and relaxation, the quiet beach between Praia Verde and Praia da Lota is the perfect place to be. With beachside restaurants serving up a variety of delicious fare as well as many outlets boasting a myriad of water sports, this is definitely a place you’ll want to set aside the entire day for. Bathe in the warm, shallow waters, laze at the beachside with a cocktail or embark on everything from jet-skiing to water surfing at this enchanting hotspot.
Altura’s perfect positioning means you can enjoy all the pleasures of a typical Algarve getaway with only half the fuss. The pristine Altura beach easily matches anything offered by Faro or elsewhere, with the added advantage of being much less crowded than its more famous counterparts. Take to the seas on a Jet Ski or speedboat, or simply cool off with your feet in the tranquil Atlantic waters.
