Algarve is a rich and
diverse region, both in culture and in its landscape. From the rugged landscape
and the Atlantic winds of the Southwest coast near Sagres, with its white sandy
beaches and pleasant coves around Lagos and Albufeira, to the stretches of
sandbanks and tranquil water of Faro and Olhao, the Algarve offers something for
everyone. Enjoy the comforts of the
luxurious resorts and then head out to explore everything that the region has
to offer. Regardless of whether you’re
looking for adventures on land or on sea, you’ll find yourself spoilt
The gleaming, turquoise sea offers great opportunities to go snorkelling, SCUBA-diving or going on boat tours to see dolphins, whales and unique caves. For those seeking more adrenaline-fueled things to do, try windsurfing, jet skiing or cut loose in one of the many waterparks that are found along the coast.
Day trips in-land will reveal a different and more ancient side of Algarve. See the rocky Serra Mountains or visit some of the old-fashioned towns and marvel at the churches, fortresses and ruins such as Milreu and the Castelo dos Mouros that date back to eras long gone, when Romans and Moors ruled the land. In the villages, towns and coastal resorts you’ll find plenty of quaint cafés and restaurants for a welcome retreat after a long day of exploring, sun-bathing and splashing about in the sea. Charcoal-grilled fish, shellfish and tuna steaks should be eaten in copious amounts, accompanied by fresh local vegetables and delicious, cold white wine; enjoy the delicious flavours while you toast the setting sun for a day well spent in Algarve’s stunning surroundings.
Permeating every particle of Greek culture is its rich heritage of history and mythology. Regardless of where you choose to holiday in Greece, you’re never far from a place that in one way or another is linked to one of the great gods like Zeus, Aphrodite or Poseidon, or the historical setting of fabled demigods and heroes like Hercules, Perseus and Odysseus.
