Best City Breaks to the Algarve

For decades holidaymakers have flocked to Portugal’s southern coast for a getaway among perfect surroundings. Jagged cliffs, rolling dunes and villages of white-painted houses rise marvellously above the ultramarine Atlantic Sea. Here you can bask in the sun, stroll along the promenades and narrow streets, or just splash about in the water until the sun goes down.

Algarve, Portugal Holidays

The 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 for choice.

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.

Tourists have been travelling to the south coast of Portugal for many years, attracted by the stunning coastline, the wonderful beaches, and the golf courses. This beautiful location is a marvel of historical sights and impressive architecture, which makes it a great starting point for your holiday. Families will want to go straight to the beach and soak up some sun, while there are great wine regions to take in for any couples. Holidays to Portugal’s Algarve region are great for children, as the beaches are clean and safe. If you need advice, talk to the travel consultants at Fleetway Travel to find out more.
