Streching for over 100 glorious miles along the southern coast of Portugal and offering a year round sunny climate, the Algarve is the perfect holiday destination. Countless sandy beaches, hidden coves and fresh Atlantic waters give way to a multitude of resorts all with their own unique charm and character.
The majority of resort can be found to the west of Faro, some of which are traditional and others long established as great family favourites. Luz and Sagres offer peaceful hideaways where you can relax against a backdrop of lush greenery and traditional bars and restaurants.
Alvor and Carvoeiro were both once small fishing villages and still retain their traditional charm offering pretty harbour fronts bursting with vibrancy and a multitude of restaurants surrounded by some impressive hotels. Golfers will adore the more exclusive regions of Vilamoura, Falesia and Vale do Lobo, great golf greens, superb ambience and of course, a number of luxury hotels.
Great budget options make the Algarve a great destination for families and many resorts like Quarteira and Armacao de Pera offer the most magnificent beaches combined with good value hotels. Albufeira remains a firm favourite and ticks all the boxes for every taste range. Upper old town is a panoramic hideaway of sugar cube buildings clustered against the hillside whilst lower Albufeira enjoys a prominent sea front location with great beaches, superb facilities and numerous hotels all vying for those pole seafront locations. To the east, Tavira's stunning beaches and charismatic old town make this a great place for couples.
