Experience Algarve with us

Whether you’re planning an Algarve day trip or have decided to stay a little longer, you’ve probably already started looking at which beaches are the most beautiful, natural, or secluded!  And, that’s to be expected before any Algarve tour.  But, there are plenty of things to do in Algarve that don’t involve the beaches.  Head inland for quaint villages, ancient ruins, majestic castles, and friendly locals.  Or, maybe you’d like to check out Cape St. Vincent and its famous lighthouse on the southwest tip of Portugal.  Then again, perhaps a boat tour launched from the rocky cliffs of Ponta da Piedade would do the trick.  And, if the kids get bored with the sand and sun, then maybe a trip to a local water park is in order, like Aquashow Park, Slide & Splash, or Zoomarine Algarve.  It’s what to do in Algarve when you’re looking for a little adrenaline rush!

Our tips for Algarve

  • Hop.Hop.Hop. An Algarve trip is all about finding the right beach for you. So, don’t sit on the same patch of sand for your entire vacation.Roam around and check out at least a few beaches before finally settling on one.
  • Go North. While the beaches steal center stage, the towns situated in the middle of Algarve offer plenty of history and culture.Explore the castles and ancient Roman ruins in Silves, Loule, and other inland settlements.
  • Think Small. Although the allure of larger cities like Faro and Lagos draw in the tourists with their high-end amenities, there’s something to be said about finding accommodations in one of the smaller towns. The quaint surroundings and friendly locals just might suck you in.

Good to know

As a coastal retreat, Algarve draws most of its visitors during the summer months. The clear skies and hot sun make a dip in the ocean irresistible. But, the shoulder months present an enticing option for an Algarve holiday, as well. The climate is a tad milder, the beaches less crowded and you can sometimes find great deals on hotel rooms. The winter months create a bit of a challenge: You just never know when it’s going to rain. Get lucky with weather and you could save significant funds on flights and accommodations while enjoying the same Algarve trip you would have if you arrived in the summer. But, if it rains during your entire Algarve tour, don’t act surprised!
