The Algarve Portugal yours to discover

About Algarve, Portugal

With many of the country's safest and loveliest beaches, and a year-round balmy climate

Algarve
The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its sunny Mediterranean climate and its beach and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960s tourism boom, and nowadays its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. The western Atlantic coast and rugged interior are less developed.

Experience the Algarve at a host of popular beach destinations like
Lagos, from where the Portuguese explorers departed for their voyages, Silves, the first capital of the Algarve after the Moorish occupation in the 13th century, and Tavira, occupied by different civilizations over the centuries. See what remains of the Phoenician and Roman empires in Portimao, Vilamoura, Albufeira and the capital, Faro.

Nonstop sunshine makes the Algarve a great alternative to the Caribbean anytime, and snowbirds seeking an extended vacation enjoy special rates at various hotels during winter.

Southern Portugal abounds with quaint fishing villages, walled historic centres, beaches dotted with spectacular rock formations, and winding streets lined with colourful tiled buildings.

Immerse yourself in the region’s authentic culture: lose yourself in fado music, taste local specialties like bacalhau (cod) and piri-piri chicken, and watch the locals go about their daily lives. For a dose of adventure, explore the Algarve’s intriguing grottoes by boat or ride the challenging waves of the Atlantic.
