Sparkling coastline, world-class golf and unspoilt villages
Famed for its Mediterranean beaches and championship golf courses, the Algarve is Portugal's best-known holiday hotspot. But, there is much more to the Algarve than its sun-drenched coastline; this is an area with true inner appeal. On our Algarve holidays, you’ll discover a region that is beautiful inside as well as out; rich in countryside, flora, fauna and historic attractions.
The Algarve’s relatively recent tourist development has done little to change the intrinsic character of this, Portugal’s southernmost region. Take an Algarve tour with us and you’ll find inland castle towns where time seems to have stood still and unspoilt fishing villages, fortified against Moorish invasion. Here, local restaurateurs queue at the quay to select the menu for the evening ahead. Try freshly caught sardines, as well as a host of other local specialities like clams or octopus. There are Portuguese delicacies to be had throughout; from small local eateries, all the way up to Michelin-starred establishments.
And, of course, Algarve’s beaches are truly spectacular. There are over 150, dotted along miles of coastline. Amongst them are some of Europe’s blue-flagged best, from broad swathes of golden sand, to sheltered coves. From watersports and beachside bars, to pure family-friendly relaxation; there’s something for everyone. Our Algarve holidays and tours will reveal a region that offers all this, and so much more.
